• ICU/Special Care Units

    Our patients are medically complex, and to provide the most cost-effective care for them our hospitals feature intensive care units or special care units where they can receive the focused, specialized care they need.

  • Kindred Hospital Boston North Shore is pleased to report our quarterly ICU Registered Nurse-to-Patient ratios per the Massachusetts Hospital Association Requirements:
