The Clinical Unit Critical Care seeks to provide for the multidisciplinary needs of patients who have sustained, or are at risk of sustaining, acute life-threatening, single or multiple organ dysfunctions due to disease or injury.
"We envisage a multidisciplinary Critical Care Service for the Steve Biko Academic Hospital to provide for the needs of these patients through immediate and continuous observation and intervention so as to restore health and prevent complications.
Thus we aim to serve the community of our region with dedication and vigour, ensuring a service of unsurpassed excellence."
