CBRH Critical Care Department

The Cape Breton Regional Hospital is home to the second-largest Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in the province. It also has a Coronary Care Unit (CCU) and an Intermediate Care Unit (IMCU).

The new department will be larger in size with more privacy, and new, seperate spaces for families. 

Other benefits include:

  • Moving patients out of the emergency department (ED) and into critical care faster, reducing pressure on the ED
  • Larger rooms with more privacy for patients and space for families to sit comfortably at the bedside
  • Adding family and support rooms inside the units
  • Improving work environment for doctors and staff with the three special care units under one roof
  • Improved layout, providing more natural light
  • Limited disruption of services during construction (new build)
