Intensivist Program

Our specially trained intensivists provide comprehensive care to patients in the intensive care unit at Mount Nittany Medical Center.

An intensivist is a critical care physician who is trained and experienced in treating complex health issues, averting complications for patients under intensive care.

They coordinate with other specialists and communicate with the patient’s primary care physician to ensure patients receive the highest quality of care during their stay in the intensive care unit at Mount Nittany Medical Center.
