Manipal Hospital Baner, Pune is designed to become one of India’s apex healthcare providers specializing in patient care with a dedicated center of excellence for critical care. The Intensive Care Unit caters to patients with severe or life-threatening illnesses and injuries and it is equipped with qualified staff and equipment to provide constant care and supervision of such patients. The unit is designed to accommodate the recovery journey of post-operative care. Specialized facilities have been created in place for intensive care (ICU), Critical Care (CCU), and High Dependency Unit (HDU). Each of these facilities is created with strict infection control protocols while keeping patient comfort at the forefront. The critical care units are inseparable from post-operative care as the initial recovery and infection control after any major surgical procedure or transplant form the basis of recovery.
The critical care unit at Manipal Hospital, Baner is in itself a multispecialty setup with dedicated units for ICU (intensive care unit), CCU (Critical Care Unit), HDU (High Dependency Unit), PICU (Paediatric Care Unit), and NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). Dedicated teams of doctors, paramedics, and staff nurses are assigned to each of the respective units to ensure strict infection control, round-the-clock monitoring, and compassionate care for patients to aid their journey towards recovery. Each of the units is sterilized on a routine basis to ensure strict medical standards of safety. The facility has an isolation facility for infection control for patients with infectious conditions as well (biosafety level 4). Dedicated life support equipment in invasive and non-invasive categories is assigned to each of the beds on reserve to ensure patient safety in adverse conditions if any complications may arise.
In some cases, when a patient's airways are restricted, an emergency tracheostomy is performed to allow a tube to go directly from a ventilator to the patient's windpipe through a precise incision on the neck. The procedure allows the patient to breathe while other diagnostic approaches and treatments are considered.

Patients are kept under strict observation of infection control protocols with the help of trained paramedical staff and nurses in a safe and lively environment.
A dedicated Paediatrics Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) were also established to cater to the medical needs of young patients and newborn babies. The medical needs of a young child or newborn are very different from a grown adult. Their bodies are fragile and their minds are young and restless, so specialized care is required to nurture their healing process. Hospitalization experience can form core memory in child psychology and therefore, the PICU is designed appropriately to comfort young patients, and the medical staff is specialized in the caretaking of paediatric medical needs.
The Manipal Hospital Baner, Pune is the first hospital in Pune by Manipal Healthcare Enterprises to have a dedicated transplant ICU. Transplant patients are highly susceptible cases from the medical point of view and require maintenance of sterile conditions and strict infection control protocols in place to ensure patient safety and transplant success. With our core value of patient care at the centre of our critical care unit design, the transplant ICU facility has been dedicated to maintaining strict protocols around infection control and patient care round the clock.
Intensive Care Unit
The Intensive Care Unit is designed for intensive patient care. The facility is equipped with invasive and non-invasive life support medical technology to support patients under critical conditions.

High Dependency Unit
Patients who require a high intensity of monitoring and management of their medical conditions post-procedure such as those suffering from organ failure or transplant recipients require a short stay in the High Dependency Unit or HDU. In functionality, the HDU is a short step down from the ICU in caring for patients until their bodily functions stabilize. The care provided to the patients is intermediate to ICU, while the medical staff is available on stand-by, for round-the-clock assistance. Specially trained paramedical staff are assigned to each of the beds in the facility to ensure personalized care for each of the patients.
Newborns and infants require specialized care for their developing bodies while receiving medical interventions. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Manipal Hospital, Baner is designed to assist and address the medical needs of these delicate, growing bodies. The specialized bed facility of the NICU is designed to assist all medical procedures and accommodate medical technologies to support neonatal healthcare. The staff nurses in the NICU are specifically trained for infection control and patient handling in the neonatal unit for optimized care and attention. Dedicated medical staff is assigned to the NICU for round-the-clock observation of the patients and specialized invasive and non-invasive life support medical technologies designed especially for NICU have also been procured for the same.
