Where to go when I arrive - Critical Care

If you have arrived at the hospital and are looking for a patient, please speak with a staff member or volunteer to inquire about your loved ones' location. We ask this because the location of your family member or friend could change between your visits. When looking to visit a patient, remember there are two main ICUs at KGH.

Kidd 2 ICU

The Kidd 2 Intensive Care Unit is located on the second floor of the Kidd-Davies Wing. It is most easily accessed through the main hospital entrance, using the Kidd wing elevators. This 33 bed unit is separated into an east wing and west wing. The east wing consists of beds numbered from one to 17 and the west wing consists of beds numbered from 18-33.

Our family lounge is located right outside of the ICU and this is the main entrance for family and visitors. A volunteer reception desk in the family lounge and is staffed by a volunteer between the hours of 8:30 a.m .and 7:00 p.m. seven days-per-week. When you arrive, please speak with the volunteer who will check with the nurse to see if your loved one is able to have visitors.

If the volunteer is not there, please use the phone on the volunteer's desk to dial into the ICU. A member of our team will check with the nurse to confirm if your family member or friend is able to receive visitors. In order to provide safe and consistent care to all ICU patients, please notify the ICU nurse when you are visiting.

Davies 4 ICU

The Davies 4 Intensive Care Unit is located on the fourth floor of the Kidd-Davies wing. It is most easily accessed through the main hospital entrance, using the Kidd wing elevators. There is a volunteer reception desk directly outside of the ICU. Please speak with the volunteer when you arrive so that they can dial into the unit and speak to a nurse to confirm that your loved one is able to see visitors.

When the volunteer is not at the desk, you may pick up the phone and speak to a staff member to confirm if you are able to visit your family member or friend at that time. In order to provide safe and consistent care to all ICU patients, it is important that you notify the ICU nurse when you are visiting.
