Critical Care Services

ICU/CCU care involves the expertise of a broad group of medical specialists and multi-disciplinary team members coordinated under the skilled oversight of an Intensivist.

Medical Surgical Services

The Medical Surgical Service at Bergen Regional Medical Center is designed to give our patients the best quality care and outcomes possible. By utilizing a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals who work together with our patients from admission through discharge to home or alternative sites, we are able to produce efficient and better quality care for our patients. The Medical Surgical Unit serves patients who have recovered significantly while in the Critical Care Units and now need a lesser level of monitoring while on the road to recovery.
