Our Unique Approach

The Children’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) has 24-hour coverage from a doctor trained to deal only with children and young adults.

The neurocritical care team works closely with our Inpatient Rehabilitation Program to help patients recover. Physiatrists—doctors who are trained to deal with pain and rehabilitation—will design a program to fit each child’s needs.

We have the only dedicated pediatric Level I and Level II trauma centers in the state—a special term given to a hospital because of its transport, emergency surgical, education and injury prevention services.
