PICU (Pediatric ICU)

A space where every detail is tailored to kids.
 
HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Unit is designed with children in mind. The PICU is located on the same floor for easy transition for both patients and families. 
 
Care is provided by a highly trained and experienced team of pediatric intensivists, pediatric nurses and other professionals. 
  • All nurses have special certification and training in pediatric care from appropriate pain relief techniques to performing special procedures.
  • A pediatric case manager and pediatric registered dietitian are resources to parents who have questions or concerns about their child’s care or progress.
  • Pediatric-trained physical, occupational, and speech therapists provide inpatient and outpatient therapy based on the child’s treatment plan.
  • If a child needs home care, home health-trained pediatric nurses will come to the child’s home to help provide treatment.
  • Transportation from outlying areas. Children who need medical care at HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital may arrive in an ambulance, via Eagle III* with specially trained transport nurses, or via ambulance. This close collaboration allows for seamless care, which starts with pickup at the referring facility, and continues with care in St. Vincent’s Emergency Department or one of the Pediatric Units.
 
*Eagle III is a joint effort of St. Vincent Hospital, Bellin Hospital, and Brown County.
