Critical Care, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)
Our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) practices family-centered care and believes a critically ill or injured child’s well-being is best if family members and loved ones thoroughly understand procedures and treatments.
Our PICU physicians (or intensivists) are pediatricians with additional training and certification in pediatric critical care medicine. We work with a variety of sub-specialty services to direct and coordinate the care of the children in our unit.
A stay in the PICU can be stressful. Our PICU staff may start out as strangers, but they'll earn your trust quickly. Rest assured, the staff members treat all children to the best of their abilities, making sure everyone is educated and comfortable.
