Intensive Care Unit
As a regional medical center, Harrison is able to offer the most advanced technologies, including a 20-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU). This is where we care for patients who are severely ill and medically unstable—that is they have a potentially life-threatening disease or disorder.

ICU care requires a multidisciplinary team of caregivers—physicians, nurses, respiratory care specialists, pharmacists—who provide highly individualized care and monitoring. Among them:
Despite the high-tech environment of our ICU, our approach remains rooted in patient-centered care. We also recognize the important role family and friends play in the healing process.

We are proud of the atmosphere we have created that blends high-tech and high-touch therapies.

Beacon AwardICU Earns National Beacon Award for Excellence
Harrison's ICU was recently honored as a recipient of the silver-level Beacon Award for Excellence! This national, three-year designation from the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) reflects the exceptional level of care and the healthy work environment in the ICU. Out of 6,000 ICUs in the United States, 197 have received Beacon designations. Only eight Beacon Awards have been bestowed to units in Washington state.

According to the AACN, silver-level recipients demonstrate continuous learning and effective systems to achieve optimal patient care. The honor is given to units that show excellence in every one of five categories:

  • leadership structures and systems
  • appropriate staffing and staff engagement
  • effective communication, knowledge management, and best practices
  • evidence-based practice and processes
  • patient outcomes

This award affirms Harrison’s commitment to fulfilling our mission of providing exceptional healthcare in our community.
