eICU Advanced Care

Wayne County Hospital provides eICU advanced care for critically ill patients. Linked with St. Lukes Hospital in Kansas City, the eICU provides remote monitoring capability for patients requiring a higher level of care than a normal acute admission. This enables Wayne County Hospital to provide a higher level of care in our rural setting. Using high resolution camera, phones and software the St. Lukes Hospital eICU Center evaluates real-time patient physiological data for thresholds and trends.

The value of this system is in providing an enhanced level of care where our physicians and nurses work collaboratively with the St. Lukes Hospital eICU team to deliver the best treatment possible. The eICU service permits patients and families to remain close to home and can be attributed to faster recoveries.
