Intensive Care Unit

Compassionate care at the most critical time

St. Charles Health System offers intensive care to the most critically ill patients at all of its facilities in Bend, Redmond, Prineville and Madras. Our multidisciplinary, family-centered approach ensures that our patients receive comprehensive and immediate treatment.

As the only Level II trauma unit in Oregon east of the Cascades, the St. Charles Bend ICU team has the training and expertise necessary to treat those whose lives are in danger. The Bend ICU is staffed 24/7 with a board-certified critical care physician. Every patient in the ICU has a physician in charge of his or her care, and highly specialized physicians may also be called in to consult on a patient's condition. Our nurses are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Trauma Emergency Assessment Management.

The ICUs in Redmond, Prineville and Madras also offer specialized critical care and are linked to resources in Bend when more help is needed. In particular, the Redmond ICU has a telemedicine robot that allows critical care physicians in Bend to monitor patients remotely. Through this technology, St. Charles is able to keep patients closer to home for their recovery.
