Investing in our Intensive Critical Care Unit

The Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital's Intensive Critical Care Unit (ICCU) provides essential care for our community's most vulnerable patients. With 10 beds, we served 1,604 patients in fiscal year 2023, and now, we're embarking on a crucial journey to elevate our care even further.

Project Goal:

Our mission is clear - to raise funds for the modernization of SNMH's ICCU. We aim to reach our fundraising goal by December 31, 2024. Construction will begin in 2025 ensuring that our facility remains at the forefront of healthcare excellence.

Hospital Need:

The upgrade of our ICCU is imperative. By enhancing functionality, efficiency, and aesthetics, we not only improve patient care but also boost nursing efficiency and enhance the overall experience for all involved. Additionally, we will invest in upgrading our telemetry monitoring system, further solidifying our commitment to cutting-edge healthcare.

Over the past few years, the SNMH Foundation has been dedicated to modernizing critical care access at our hospital. In 2020, we completed the transformation of the Emergency Department and updated the technology in the Surgery Department. Currently, we are resurfacing the helipad for life flights and upgrading the telemetry system in the ICCU. These enhancements will ensure that all critical care access points are fully prepared to serve our community.

Key Upgrades:

Our comprehensive plan includes a headwall upgrade, seamless technology integration, aesthetic enhancements, and meticulous attention to compliance standards. These upgrades will not only modernize our facility but also ensure that we continue to meet and exceed industry regulations.


  • Enhanced Patient Care: Improved functionality and accessibility of medical equipment will streamline patient care processes.
  • Efficiency: Integration of modern technology will boost efficiency in monitoring patient vitals and accessing medical records.
  • Patient Comfort: Aesthetic improvements will contribute to a more soothing and comfortable environment for patients and their families.
  • Competitive Edge: Modernizing the ICCU will enhance the hospital’s reputation and instill greater confidence in individuals seeking advanced healthcare facilities.

Join us in this critical endeavor as we work together to elevate healthcare standards and ensure the well-being of our community. Your support is invaluable as we strive to create a healthier, happier future for all.
