Mobile Intensive Care Units

Hunterdon Medical Center operates four, regionally based Mobile Intensive Care Units (MICU) located in Raritan Township, Glen Gardner, Lambertville and Lopatcong Township.

Together, these MICUs service Hunterdon, Somerset, Warren and Mercer counties.  The MICUs function as an extension of the emergency department by providing advanced life support care in the community setting.  Each MICU vehicle has state-of-the-art equipment which allows the Paramedics and Nurses to provide care & treatment to those facing life-threatening emergencies.  This care is rendered in conjunction with the Emergency Department Physicians at Hunterdon Medical Center via voice communications whether in the home, in route to the hospital or wherever the patient care is needed.

Following New Jersey law, paramedics can begin patient treatment under state-sanctioned “Standing Orders” thereby initiating life-saving treatment in the field as quickly as possible. The Emergency Department Physician is then consulted for further orders and care plan for transport to the most appropriate facility.  In many cases, that is the closest emergency room.  In the case of an allergic reaction, heart attack, stroke, asthma or congestive heart failure, every second counts. The key to emergency care is “the sooner, the better” for an improved patient outcome.

The Hunterdon Medical Center MICU team of pre-hospital responders was the first in New Jersey to administer Retavase – a clot-busting drug – to heart-attack patients during their transport.  More recently, the MICU was a national pioneer when it introduced Brilinta, an anti-platelet medication to the field for heart attack patients. These patients are then delivered to Hunterdon Medical Center’s state-of-the-art, Norman and Denise Guilloud Cardiovascular Center for evaluation and in many cases receive a cardiac catheterization procedure, in many cases, terminating the heart attack.

The Hunterdon Medical Center MICU also serves as a learning resource, providing regular training opportunities in the latest emergency medical procedures for Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) in surrounding counties.

If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 9-1-1.
