Sky Ridge Medical Center is located in Lone Tree, CO. Critical Care and Pulmonary Consultants are an independent group of physicians who have been providing critical care, hospitalist, and pulmonary services for Sky Ridge Hospital since 2003. We are a locally owned, physician run company committed to the betterment of health in our community.
Our group consists of specialized, board certified physicians (known as “Hospitalists” and “Intensivists”) who have expertise in the care of acutely ill hospitalized patients. Our doctors are present in the hospital 24 hours daily in order to be readily available to care for you or your loved ones. Critical Care and Pulmonary Consultants have established relationships with many of our community physicians, and our goal is to be an extension of your primary care provider when you are hospitalized. Our group will communicate with your primary care provider in order to make the transition from inpatient care to outpatient care as seamless as possible.
Our group of well trained doctors works closely with hospital administration, ancillary staff, and other medical subspecialists in order to provide “State of the Art” care for our patients. Our physicians have maintained leadership roles on hospital committees such as “Quality Improvement”, “Medical Executive Committee”, and “Pharmacy and Therapeutics”. Our doctors hold positions such as “Chief of Medicine,” and “ICU Director”. Critical Care and Pulmonary Consultants have been instrumental in developing protocols which follow evidenced based national guidelines in order to maintain the highest level of patient care throughout the hospital. These are an example of some of the protocols that we have developed and implemented over the years:
- Sepsis and Shock
- ARDS and Ventilator Management
- Diabetic ketoacidosis
- Glycemic control for critically ill patients
- Deep venous thrombosis prevention
- Thrombolytic therapy for pulmonary embolism
- Hypothermia after a cardiac arrest
Our group has maintained a high level of medical care for our patients at Sky Ridge Hospital by combining scientific knowledge with an individualistic and humanistic approach.
