Critical Care Medicine at University Health Network/Mount Sinai
The Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Mount Sinai Hospital cares for approximately 800 patients annually who come from key areas of the hospital including emergency, surgical oncology, and women’s obstetrics. We also provide care to critically-ill cancer patients admitted from Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
The Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit (MSICU) at Toronto General Hospital admits approximately 1000 high-acuity patients per year with a focus on lung and liver transplants and complex surgery. The Multi-Organ Transplant Program at Toronto General Hospital is one of the largest in North America and in the world. The MSICU is also a referral centre for extra-corporeal life support.
The Medical/Surgical/Neuro Intensive Care Unit (MSNICU) at Toronto Western Hospital provides care for both neuroscience and general critical care patients. It is a regional centre for neurosurgery, spinal surgery, and neurology. As one of the busiest neurocritical care units in the country, neurocritical care physicians collaborate with a strong interdisciplinary care group of neurosurgeons, neurologists, and health professionals.
The Critical Care Program at the University Health Network and Sinai Health System strives to be a world-leading centre in Critical Care Medicine. Each of our four major teaching hospitals is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto and each has its own subspecialized area of critical illness. Our mission is to provide exemplary, safe patient care, fostering a culture of discovery, innovation, and knowledge translation. With our education program, we train physicians from all over the world to become the future leaders in critical care medicine, science, and education.
