Critical Care Medicine

We understand how frightening and confusing it can be to have a child with a critical illness. We’re here to help.

Our critical care teams in the intensive care unit have access to state-of-the-art medical facilities, and their combined expertise covers several types of illnesses, such as asthma, seizures, sepsis, and meningitis.

In addition, we take care of many children who need care following surgery for complex congenital heart disease, organ transplantation, neurosurgical disease, and ENT, orthopedic and ophthalmological problems.

We also offer a robust trauma program, with particular expertise in head trauma and multi-organ trauma. A full-time transport system brings patients to the pediatric intensive care unit from our network hospitals, other hospitals within the tri-state area and beyond.

Our facilities are family friendly, and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your child’s illness and care plan.
