Intensive Care Unit
Also known as Critical Care Unit (CCU), our ICU provides intensive care treatment to patients with severe and life-threatening illness and injuries that require close monitoring and support. Our team consisting of perioperative and anaesthetic nurses as well as our intensivists are in charge of the specialized care required for patients in the ICU.
LECC ICU has a higher staff-to-patient ratio and access to advanced medical resources, which results in good patient outcome.
The most seriously ill or injured patients are cared for by the critical care intensivists. These experts provide specialised care for patients who have experienced major surgery or trauma, as well as those with other critical medical needs.
Led by Dr. Lanre Akanmu, our Department of Critical Care Medicine at LECC is committed to outstanding patient care in neonatal, paediatric and adult ICU.
We are leaders in critical care medicine delivery for successful outcomes. Our primary clinical priority is to deliver state of the art around-the-clock, multidisciplinary, compassionate, tertiary care to critically ill patients in our ICUs.
