Cardiac Stepdown Unit
Acute, transitional care
At Riverview, Cardiac Stepdown functions as our progressive care unit.
Progressive care is for patients who are able to leave critical care (ICU
or CCU), but still require a higher level of care and monitoring. Cardiac
Stepdown consists of a multidisciplinary team of specialized doctors,
specially trained critical care nurses, and other dedicated healthcare
professionals providing 24-hour care and monitoring.
