With several advances in medical care, critical care has emerged as crucial and indispensable clinical speciality in the field of medical care. We, at MGM Hospital Vashi, have one of the best critical care units in Navi Mumbai. Our critical care unit is a combination of multidisciplinary intensive care units.

At MGM Hospital Vashi we believe in standardized protocols, infection control practices and clinical pathways. We have ongoing DNB Critical Care programme and we also emphasize a lot on staff education, training, and academics.

We have been ranked one of the best critical care units at regional as well as national level as per Times Of India ranking. Our critical care team comprises of 24 X 7 available, highly skilled and efficient, specialists, intensivists, well trained nursing staff and paramedics. We believe in evidence based, protocolized approach as per international standards.

Our team approach has made us achieve best door to needle time, door to balloon time and we also have a splendid success record of primary angioplasty in heart attack cases. Patients undergoing major/ supra major surgeries and/or surgical patients with preexisting multiple comorbidities and complicated high risk obstetric patients are managed in critical care.

Our multidisciplinary team approach helps manage life threatening emergencies as well as rare and complicated diseases successfully.


  • As per the latest Times of India survey, we have been ranked as the 7th best critical care units in Mumbai.
  • We have successfully thrombolysed a number of stroke patients well within stipulated time courtesy to our dedicated stroke team.
  • We are very proud of our skilled and well coordinated, dedicated code blue team which has breathed life in good number of cardiac arrest patients. Our survival to discharge in post cardiac arrest cases is comparable with international benchmarks.

What are the parameters monitored in critical care?
Heart rate and rhythm, BP (non-invasive and invasive), oxygen saturation, urine output, neuro-observation, central venous pressure, cardiac output etc.
When is the patient put on ventilator?
Patient is put on the ventilator when he/she is not able to maintain the oxygenation, is in respiratory distress, not in proper conscious state to protect the airway or prone for aspiration, post major surgeries patient may need elective ventilatory support.
When can be the patient removed from the ventilator?
Patient is weaned from the ventilator after resolution of the primary problem and he/she is conscious, able to protect the airway along with improvement in breathing.
