What Makes Us Special

​The Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) is proud to be part of Peter Munk Cardiac Centre. We are transforming the future of cardiac and vascular care for patients, both locally and around the world. We're committed to integrating excellence in clinical care, research, innovation and education.

Our team of highly specialized clinicians use advanced training and skills to advocate and care for patients during their recovery from cardiac and vascular surgeries. We are equipped with cutting-edge technologies to best serve the needs of each individual patient.

We are also an inter-professional team who works together, using best practice guidelines and current research, to put the needs of our patients first.  We are highly compassionate and respect the values and needs of patients and their families.

We are proud to be Canada's first recipient of the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence.
