Who We Are

The 3H ICU team is a close knit group that cares for a diverse patient population requiring a variety of interventions.  We are flexible and embrace new challenges.  We pride ourselves on being warm and welcoming while maintaining excellent patient outcomes.  Although we like to have fun and maintain a sense of humor, we take patient care seriously and always place patients first.
