The Critical Care Medicine Department is on call 24 hours a day to provide Level 1 trauma care to seriously ill patients and improve the care of future patients through education and research efforts.

Our Services

Our team provides care in several areas of the hospital:

Our role in the PICU centers around state-of-the-art respiratory and heart pressure/flow management of critically ill children. We are also involved in the care of children recovering from complex heart procedures and organ transplants.

Many children come to our Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center via ambulance, helicopter or even fixed-wing aircraft wtih our Pediatric and Neonatal Transport Team. The transport team consists of specially trained neonatal and pediatric nurses, respiratory therapists, EMS and physicians.
