The 10-bed Intensive/Critical Care Unit at Fauquier Hospital has exceptionally skilled staff and state of the art equipment to provide the best opportunity for recovery from serious illness. The Planetree focus is extended into the critical care area, allowing open visitation, overnight accommodations and encouragement of the Care Partner program. The care and concern shown by our staff helps support not only the patients, but also the family during a very trying time.
Fauquier Hospital’s intensivist program is in place in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. It means that the ICU has two physicians who are specially trained in critical care -- Sok Yi, M.D. and Trudy Kantra, D.O. – on site to care for patients who are most in need. Dr. Yi has been working as a hospitalist at Fauquier Hospital since early 2015 and is the medical director of the program.
For patients, this means that a critical care specialist will be on site in the ICU seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The intensivists provide expertise for all patients in the ICU in collaboration with the primary attending and consultant physicians. Specialists on Call provides telemedicine coverage from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., with the understanding that the intensivists remain on call and will return to the hospital based on clinical needs.
