The Adult Emergency Department consists of 111 beds including 8 for medical resuscitation and 20 for traumatic resuscitation. There is an 18 bed pediatric emergency department.  There are 85 adult ICU beds including medical, surgical/trauma and neurosurgical at University Hospital where provision of care is accomplished by attending physicians, intensivists, residents, acute-care mid-level practitioners, clinical pharmacists and other care personnel.  In addition, University Hospital is certified as a Cardiac Cath Center and Comprehensive Stroke Center by the Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association – the highest level of certification available.
