Some children admitted to Children's Hospital require critical care and intensive care after surgery. The PICU cares for children of all ages needing special medical attention. The PICU team is a group of doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and other health care providers. A child staying in the PICU can be a stressful time for families. Our team gives you access to case managers, child life specialists, and other support staff to help during your hospital visit.
