Division of Critical Care

The Division of Pediatric Intensive Care offers multidisciplinary, state-of-the-art critical care services for infants and children. These services include the care of pediatric patients suffering from catastrophic medical illnesses, and victims of trauma. There is continuous 24-hour coverage by one of seven board-certified/eligible pediatric intensivists, as well as in-house pediatric housestaff.

The unit is staffed with a dedicated group of highly skilled nurses and equipped with the latest technology required to care for the critically ill infant or child.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) services are now available in this unit for infants/children with severe pulmonary or cardiovascular failure. The Pediatric Critical Care Physicians also run a pediatric deep sedation service and PICC line service for both inpatients and outpatients.
