The two units also encourage increased family involvement in care by providing family space in the patient rooms and expanded, improved waiting accommodations for families and other visitors.

CSICU is a specialized nursing unit that is intended for critically ill patients who have recently undergone complex heart operations—including open-heart surgery, transplantation and implantation of a ventricular assistance device.
