Critical Care Medicine

 

Critical care medicine is a field devoted to the management of life-threatening conditions requiring monitoring and complex organ support. It includes medical and surgical care found in the intensive care units.

Critical care providers seek to relieve their patients until their serious conditions are no longer endangering their lives.

Watson Clinic's team of Critical Care physicians are on staff at Lakeland Regional Health (LRH) Medical Center for your convenience and care.
