UW Health's Neurocritical Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at UW Hospital and Clinics in Madison, Wisconsin, provides value in the care of neurologically-ill patients by improving outcomes and reducing costs.
Joshua Medow, MD, founded the neurocritical care program in 2008. Our state-of-the-art, 16-bed, dedicated neurocritical care unit provides value by following best practices and identifying quality improvement initiatives in our ICU. Our efforts have reduced mortality in the sickest patients by 43 percent and costs by about $3 million.
