Services our PICU provides

When children become critically ill, they often need specialized treatment and continuous observation.

Additionally, the board-certified pediatric critical care physicians and nurses are specially trained to care for our young patients who need extra attention.

We also work with rehabilitation therapists and pediatric pharmacists to help your child get healthy again. Each member of this team is trained specifically to care for the unique needs of children.

Child life services

We know it can be hard for children to cope with being in the hospital. This is why we offer child life services.
