The Critical Care Unit (CCU) at Bartlett Regional Hospital is a 9-bed specialty unit. We are committed to delivering excellent medical and nursing care. The nursing staff has expert training in the particular problems of critical care patients and in operating the specialized monitoring equipment available in the unit.
Bartlett partners with Providence Alaska Medical Center through our electronic intensive care unit (eICU) to provide additional around-the-clock monitoring for critically ill patients.

Waiting Areas and Visitor Accommodations
The waiting room for the families and friends of the CCU patients is located directly outside of the Critical Care Unit. The waiting area is furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs, a phone and television for your comfort. A wide variety of teaching materials are also available in the waiting room.
We have pull-out sofas in each of the patient rooms. If it is appropriate for the patient, a support person may spend the night in the patient's room to help ease the stress of the patient's hospital stay.
Communicating With Staff
It is best if you designate 1 or 2 family members to be the primary point of contact for the nurse. Having a family spokesperson decreases the time needed for repeated explanations and allows the doctors and nurses a chance to get to know one person well. The spokesperson can then be responsible for relaying information to the rest of the family members and friends.
We encourage you to keep a notebook handy. The notebook is a useful tool to keep track of questions that you may want to ask or information that you would like to share with family members.
If you have any problems or concerns, please contact the patient's nurse, the CCU nurse manager or the house supervisor as soon as possible. We would like to address problems as quickly as we can. Our goal is for the patients and visitors to have a very good experience during their stay with us.
