Tertiary & Quaternary Critical Care

Depending on your health, you require different levels of care. If you are healthy or have a common illness such as a cold, you need help from a primary care physician. If you have heart disease, you require secondary care from a cardiologist. When you are severely ill or injured, you require tertiary and quaternary care in a hospital setting. These last two levels of care are only available at a limited number of hospitals across the nation. They require highly specialized equipment and access to rare procedures and clinical trials.

Indiana University Health Critical Care physicians are specially trained to provide these higher levels of care. We partner with Indiana University School of Medicine  to perform research on medical conditions and treatment options that improve your health. As part of the only nationally ranked healthcare system in the state, we offer advanced, high-quality care and collaboration with expert physicians from a variety of medical specialties such as neuroscience, transplant, oncology and cardiology.
