Spanish translation:Unidad de Terapia Intensiva
Explanation:
ó Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos.

Ahora con respecto a SICU= SECONDARY INTENSIVE CARE UNIT, en español es : UNIDAD DE TERAPIA INTERMEDIA/ UNIDAD DE CUIDADOS INTERMEDIOS.

Por Intermedios se entiende, a mitad de camino entre la terapia INTENSIVA y el tratamiento común SIN cuidados especiales.

Saludos,

Explanation:
If ICU is "intensive care unit", then maybe SICU is "semi-ICU"?; that's my guess. Try a search w/ that term, see what you get.
