Cardiac Intensive Care Unit
As a cardiac patient, you can expect the highest level of attention and care in VVMC’s Critical Care Unit, or CCU, and Flagstaff Medical Center’s Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit, or CVICU.
Innovative technology and specially trained caregivers in each of our 11-bed units mean you will receive the most advanced care available.
Step Down Unit
The Step Down Unit at FMC is designed for cardiac patients who have progressed to a recovery level no longer needing an ICU setting, but still require monitoring before moving to a lower level of care or leaving the hospital.
This 22-bed unit has cardiac monitors for every patient and is very close to the CIVCU if you or a loved one should require additional care.
The telemetry units are for cardiac patients who don't need intensive care, but who aren't quite ready to go home. Here, highly trained registered nurses and telemetry technicians continually monitor a patient's heart rhythm through electronic transmission from his or her room.
