Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center Adds Critical Care Intensivist Program to Enhance Patient Care

Jul 14, 2020
Program gives critical care patients treated in ICU an even higher level of care

Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is now treating patients with a higher level of ICU care with the addition of the Critical Care Intensivist Program.  The program consists of six intensivists and six nurse practitioners overseeing four intensive care units, 24 hours a day seven days a week.   Those areas include cardiothoracic, medical, neurosurgical, and surgical. 

“The quality of care in our intensive care or specialty units will have a tremendous effect on the overall performance of patient care at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center,” said Dr. Ribal Darwish, medical director of the critical care intensivist program at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.  “Our services provide continuous in-house coverage to improve service access and establish a culture of patient-centric care.”

As part of providing emergent care for acute patients, the CCI program at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is the only hospital in Palm Beach County using the Hemolung RAS device for patient care. The Hemolung provides partial lung support independently of the lungs to help patients breathe. 

“The critical care intensivist program at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is a boost to healthcare in this community,” said Teresa Urquhart, chief executive officer at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.  “Having this team in place is a commitment to our patients that we are there for them when they need us most, and we can provide our most vulnerable patients with an enhanced level of care in a safe and secure environment.”
