Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit


Advanced care after heart surgery

The cardiovascular intensive care unit (CVICU) at ETMC Tyler provides specialized care and around-the-clock monitoring for you or your loved ones who have had open-heart or another form of cardiovascular surgery.

Our CVICU medical team blends technical and scientific expertise with compassionate oversight to provide state-of-the-art care. The registered nurses on our staff undergo extensive critical care training and average more than 10 years of ICU experience per person.

Designed to improve safety and recovery

The eight-bed CVICU is located next to the cardiovascular surgery suites, allowing all heart surgery services to be concentrated in one area. This unique configuration provides additional patient safety. The rooms feature large windows for a cheerful atmosphere that assists you in regaining orientation during your stay, which can range from 16 to 48 hours.

It’s advanced cardiac care that changes lives – and it’s the heart of our commitment to you.
