The Critical Care Trauma Center (CCTC) at London Health Sciences Centre's (LHSC) Victoria Hospital is a 30 bed medical-surgical-trauma unit. Our patient population is adults over 18 years of age. There is a separate Pediatric Critical Care Unit (PCCU) located opposite to the visitors' entrance to CCTC.
The CCTC cares for patients who require intensive care following multiple trauma or surgical procedures (including vascular, thoracic, gynecology and otolaryngology), and high risk obstetrics, oncology, sepsis and complex medical disorders (including respiratory and renal diseases). CCTC is a referral center for Southwestern Ontario, providing high quality critical care services by staff who are specially trained to meet the complex needs of critically ill patients.
The Critical Care Outreach Team (CCOT) is comprised of nurses, physicians and respiratory therapists who bring critical care support to London Health Sciences Centre's (LHSC) patients beyond the walls of the critical care unit.
The CCTC is a Level III teaching facility, affilated with Western University (UWO). Care is provided by a multidisciplinary team of professional health care providers, and is directed by our physicians who have specialty training in critical care. You can learn more about our unit by visiting the Patients, Families and Visitors section of our site.
Our teams promote an interdisciplinary learning environment, teaching students from various disciplines and educational institutions, including: Western University, Fanshawe College and partnering academic institutions. Many members of the critical care team are academically affiliated with faculties at Western University.
