Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) provides a more intense level of care and treatment for children ages 0-17. Pediatric physicians and specialists are on staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide the best medical attention.
Our specially-designed PICU includes a child-friendly atmosphere and “under the sea” theme. The rooms are bright, colorful and spacious, and each includes a DVD player. Parents have access to a break room, kitchen and shower, enabling them to spend more time with their children and less time away from the hospital. Working with pediatric specialists and nurses, parents also play an integral role in their child’s care plan. Nurses only care for one to two patients at a time, making sure children receive the care and attention they deserve while in the PICU.
