What is an ICU?

An Intensive Care Unit (ICU) provides specialist treatment to patients who are acutely unwell and require critical care. At The Wesley Hospital, our ICU clinicians provide high-quality care for patients with life-threatening conditions. Admission can occur because of serious injury or illness, or as the first stage of a patient’s recovery after major surgery.

With 19 intensive care beds, the Wesley ICU is one of Australia’s largest private intensive care facilities. Being admitted or waking in ICU can be an unexpected and daunting experience.
