Critical Care

There when you need it, Tri-County provides critical care for people with life-threatening injuries and illnesses.

Intensive Care Unit

Tri-County Health Care's Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a special department within the hospital that provides intensive care for patients with the most serious injuries and illnesses. Most often, patients are placed in ICU because they are acutely ill or need special attention immediately after surgery. The patient is cared for in the ICU if they are at risk for complications and need close, constant monitoring, special equipment or medications from specially trained staff. Physicians and critical care nurses, who specialize in caring for the most severely ill patients, staff the ICU.

As part of our philosophy of care, Tri-County encourages family involvement in the care of their loved ones receiving care in the ICU. The support of family and friends during these times can be an invaluable source of strength and healing.

There to support you and your loved ones in any way we can, Tri-County offers a number of resources available to you.

  • On-site Social Services coordinators
  • On-site chapel for personal reflection
  • Full-service cafeteria

Clergy from Wadena and the surrounding communities visit Tri-County Health Care often and wish to be contacted if a member of their congregation is admitted to Tri-County Hospital. If you desire a visit by your pastor or priest, please indicate this at time of admission. If anytime during hospitalization you would like to see your clergy, hospital staff will be glad to contact them for you.
