The Stormont-Vail Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is dedicated exclusively to the care of children and adolescents. The unit specializes in life-saving medical emergencies. The multi-disciplinary unit serves patients with a wide range of pediatric conditions including severe asthma or other severe respiratory services, diabetes complications, infections, trauma and those recovering from major surgery.

The PICU is a six-bed, private room unit. The unit is supported by state-of-the-art technologies. Patients in the PICU range in age from infants to 18-year olds.

The unit is staffed 24 hours a day by a pediatric intensivist and specially trained nurses and respiratory therapists.  Surgical, trauma, and other services make possible the highest quality of care.
