Cardiovascular Care Unit
After a heart attack or major cardiac surgery, patients will stay in our Cardiac Care Unit (CCU), which offers highly specialized care until their condition stabilizes. Our CCU contains extensive heart monitoring and testing equipment as well as a staff trained and certified in heart conditions and procedures. The CCU at Penrose Hospital offers heart patients a custom care experience, close to home. Nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, dieticians, speech therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, resource managers and clergy members all contribute their expertise to meet patients’ overall needs.
