Please join us in congratulating the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) team as they received a Gold Designation as a Beacon Unit from the American Association of Critical-Care Nursing! The UNC SICU was one of only 30 ICUs in the nation to receive this recognition. Despite two years of the pandemic and limited resources, the SICU team rallied and are now recognized for their incredible effort. This is the 4th consecutive designation for SICU, and advancement to gold! Our surgeons, staff, and team members are very proud to work with such professionals and continue our commitment and support for them.

Congratulations to the Surgical Trauma ICU at North Carolina Memorial Hospital on successfully achieving a GOLD -level AACN Beacon Award for Excellence. Your unit’s accomplishment represents one of many significant milestones on the path to optimal outcomes and exceptional patient care. We know the application process is a big commitment requiring staff time, resources, and teamwork. We are pleased you have chosen to partner with us on your excellence journey and look forward to hearing about your continued exceptional work on behalf of patients and their families.” – The Beacon Team
