Avera eICU Care
Avera believes the absolute best Intensive Care Unit technology should be available to hospital patients throughout the region. Our new Avera eICU® CARE brings the latest in telemedicine and ICU care to Avera St. Luke’s by connecting critical care experts in Sioux Falls to ICU patients staying at hospitals in the Avera system.
How the eICU Improves Critical Care
Avera expanded its critical care resources to include an off-site team led by an intensivist. Working with our on-site Avera St. Luke’s Hospital ICU/CCU staff, this team uses the latest networking technology to monitor and quickly react to any changes in the condition or vital-signs of our patients.
Avera eICU® CARE connects facilities throughout the region, providing an extra level of critical care expertise. Learn more about Avera eICU Care in Aberdeen.
