Critical Care

The Wallace Conerly Critical Care Hospital houses five specialty care units – four intensive care units and the bone marrow transplant unit. The 92-bed Conerly facility, known as the critical care tower, is connected to University of Mississippi Medical Center's University Hospital.

University of Mississippi Medical Center is Mississippi's only designated Level 1 trauma center and has trauma surgery faculty on site 24 hours a day. In addition to the trauma service provided, there are four specialized intensive care units. These are the surgical ICU, medical ICU, cardiac ICU and the neuroscience ICU. Each has access to board-certified intensivists 24 hours a day.

Each ICU has a specialized team to manage patients with diagnoses including, but not limited to, trauma, sepsis, shock, respiratory failure, cardiac diseases and surgeries, stroke and traumatic brain injuries. The bone marrow transplant unit has a specialized staff that provides state-of-the-art care for patients suffering for hematologic malignancies.

In addition to the advanced technology used in the bedside care of the patients in the intensive care units, there is additional remote monitoring provided by an electronic ICU known as Intensiview. Intensiview is staffed with experienced ICU nurses and board-certified intensivists. 

Children's intensive care is provided at Children's Hospital. Newborn intensive care is provided at the Wiser Hospital for Women & Infants.
