Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)

The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is committed to providing evidence-based state of the art critical care to children from birth through their 21st birthday in a family-centered environment.  We encourage parents, guardians and extended family involvement in the care of your children. You are regularly a part of the creation of the plan of care through our daily bedside rounds.
A multidisciplinary team consisting of physicians, subspecialists, nurses, nurse practitioners, nutritionists,  pharmacists, social workers, child life therapists and discharge planners working together to ensure that a comprehensive plan of care is developed that meets the unique needs of each child and family.
The staff of the PICU is set apart by their regular participation in quality improvement projects in national collaborative organizations, such as the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA). This includes a study on the reduction in blood stream infections associated with catheters which has seen a significant reduction in infection rates. Other ongoing projects focus on reducing ventilator associated infections, improving the provision of nutrition, and examining issues associated with end-of-life. We have participated with the CHA, PICU Focus Group for over eight years and have participated in national presentations of results from our unit.
