When you or a family member need intensive, around-the-clock care, Willamette Valley Medical Center is ready to serve you in our Intensive Care Unit.
Our ICU medical staff and physicians have extensive, specialized training and clinical experience, which could be why, on a recent Gallup survey, patients ranked their satisfaction with Willamette Valley Medical Center’s inpatient care at 96% – that’s A+ care.
To maintain this high level of quality care, even as our surrounding communities are growing, we have increased our Intensive Care Unit capacity (ICU) from 7 beds to 11 beds.
We hope you and your family members will never need our Intensive Care Unit, but if you do, you can feel confident that you’ll experience the highest quality of care.
We keep our ICU doors open to family, friends and support persons. We recognize their role in the healing of our patients. It is vital!
In the ICU at Willamette Valley Medical Center we have an open visitation policy. We ask that you wash your hands as you enter, refrain from visiting if you are ill yourself and talk with the nurse before your first visit to the ICU patient you are supporting. The patient ultimately is the only decision maker about their own priority support person and we encourage those that help our patients best.
We have a quiet time in the afternoon to promote rest and sleep in our ICU population. We ask that you take that opportunity to care for yourself as a visitor and support person to get the rest you may need or nourish yourself.
