Intensive Care Units

Denver Health’s four intensive care units provide safe, expert care that respects the patient’s unique and changing needs. With advances in the science of critical illness to improve the care for our patients, our goal to provide top care to all our patients and their loved ones remains at the center of our mission.

Medical Intensive Care Unit

Our Medical Intensive Care Unit is a 24-bed unit providing care to very sick patients. The unit is staffed by a team of doctors, nurses, therapists, chaplains and social workers with the goal of providing excellent care to all our patients and their loved ones.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is adjacent to Labor and Delivery. The NICU is designed for newborns in need of intensive medical care following birth, especially when newborns arrive early or have special needs.

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit is located adjacent to Pediatrics. Each room is private with a flat screen television and is equipped with all of the state-of-the-art equipment needed to help children recover from serious illnesses and injuries. Pediatric intensivists and surgeons are on staff to provide care 24 hours a day, and our nursing staff specializing in pediatric intensive care is always nearby to help.

Surgical Intensive Care Unit

The Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) at Denver Health is highly specialized, where the hospital's most critically ill patients recover from trauma accidents and emergency surgeries. The SICU is staffed by specially-trained trauma nurses and trauma physicians who care for patients 24 hours a day.

Visiting Hours

Patient visits are welcome 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. At certain times, we may request that you leave the room briefly, usually during the shift change at 7 am and 7 pm or while we are giving care.
