Critical Care Unit Enhancements
Providence Milwaukie Foundation
Caring for critically ill patients
When the unexpected strikes, Providence Milwaukie Hospital is committed to bringing our community fast, advanced care.
Nearly three out of four patients admitted to our hospital come through our emergency department. Many of these patients need care for high-acuity conditions. They may have sepsis, a potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when the body's response to an infection damages its own tissues, or respiratory conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or exacerbated cases of asthma, pneumonia or flu.
To better meet these patients’ needs, Providence is investing in equipment for high-acuity care, including new beds and advanced monitoring technology that will assure that patients never lack the watchful care of our physicians and nurses.
Providence Milwaukie Foundation is raising funds to further enhance our facilities, increase access to specialized care and provide advanced training to personnel who care for high-acuity patients.
Donor contributions will purchase specialized beds for critical and high-acuity patients and install state-of-the-art telemedicine equipment to bring patients fast, specialized heart, stroke and cancer care from specialists throughout the region.
Donors will augment Providence’s investments in employee development, helping to provide advanced training to employees to ensure that patients with challenging but unusual conditions receive the outstanding care they expect from Providence.
Facility improvements will enhance patient safety, provide more privacy, and increase efficiency, providing more space to bring our patients the latest technology and treatments.
