Emergency Critical Care Center

One of the first of its kind in the country, the Massey Emergency Critical Care Center, or Massey EC3, was designed to deliver optimal care to patients from the moment of arrival through the first crucial hours of a health crisis.

With five resuscitation/trauma bays and nine patient rooms, the 7,800-square-foot EC3 provides teams of U-M doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and others the room and technology they need to stabilize the patient, make an initial diagnosis, and begin to provide advanced care for health crises such as strokes, sepsis, hemorrhages, traumatic brain injury, cardiac arrest, overdoses and acute lung injury. 

Through close partnerships between U-M emergency teams and teams in Michigan Medicine's six specialized adult intensive care units, patients receive smoother transition to the next phase of care.
