Intensive Care Unit
The Intensive Care Unit at EOMC is a 4 bed unit equipped to monitor seriously or critically ill patients with intensive monitoring. Life or organ support provisions may also be necessary. The clinical- ancillary staff at Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center includes the departments of Nursing, Physical Therapy, Laboratory, Radiology and Respiratory Services. These departments offer a variety of diagnostic services to inpatients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week as needed.
Our ICU Department is technically equipped with newly renovated rooms with a spacious nurse’s station that oversees each ICU bed at all times. Each room is fully equipped to monitor and respond to the needs of the critical care patient. When intensive caring is essential, Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center provides the skilled nursing staff to provide close observation of cardiac and intensive care patients. Unit nurses have advanced training in cardiac and critical care as well as advanced cardiac life support ( ACLS & CPR).
