Health professionals

Caboolture Redcliffe Intensive Care Unit (CRICU) is an innovative model of care that demonstrates and aligns with Metro North Hospital and Health Service principle of integrated service. There is a single consultant intensivist team working across 2 sites (‘pods’) as a combined service, supported by ICU nursing teams at both sites. It is a model that heavily relies on the utilisation of information technology to deliver services. The combined admission for the 2 pods is approximately 900 patients per year. The 2 pods have different capabilities and can transfer patients between sites based on their clinical need.
