Both Units are specifically designed and equipped to provide physiological monitoring and life supporting therapies to patients with a critical illness in an open, team-focused environment.

Western Health has the only Intensive Care Service located in the western suburbs of Melbourne and is currently admitting over 1000 patients each year. The Sunshine Hospital ICU has opened with the same philosophy, practice and leadership and will work with the current ICU to expand and further develop the Service.
