Medical Critical Care Services

Rutgers Health Medical Critical Care Services provide care for critically ill patients who have complex, multisystem, life-threatening diseases. We often treat patients with complex, critical care issues who obtain referrals from primary and secondary care physicians. Many of our patients are admitted to the Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ, where we provide treatment.

The diseases we diagnose and manage include:

  • Acute gastrointestinal hemorrhage
  • Acute liver and kidney failure
  • Acute respiratory failure due to COPD, asthma, pneumonia, and ARDS
  • Endocrine emergencies
  • Hypovolemic and distributive shock
  • Intracranial hemorrhage
  • Life-threatening infections
  • Severe pancreatitis
  • Severe sepsis
  • Status epilepticus
  • Strokes

Patients admitted to Rutgers Health Medical Critical Care Services are under the care of physicians who are on the faculty of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in clinical research and in teaching about all aspects of critical care medicine. Each brings life-changing knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.

Rutgers Health Medical Critical Care Services physicians are board certified in critical care. Each leads care teams consisting of a critical care fellow and internal medicine residents. The expertise of our care teams extends to our doctors who are specialists in a broad range of medical fields and are available for consultations.

To see a physician with Rutgers Health Medical Critical Care Services, you may wish to speak with the primary or secondary care physician that is treating you or your loved one, or make an appointment on your own. Once admitted, we can discuss the best treatment options with you and your family.
