Children who have complex surgery or need to be hospitalized due to serious illness or injury often are cared for in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Within the RMHC Family of Care, we have two PICUs where we provide the highest level of care for your child.
Pediatric Intensive Care Units
- Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children at P/SL
- Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children at Swedish Medical Center
PICU Team with Advanced Training
Our PICU medical team provides comprehensive care and monitoring 24 hours a day, seven days a week by our board-certified pediatric intensivists and nurses who are specially trained to care for the sickest children in the hospital.
Your child's nurse is intimately involved in the minute-to-minute care of your child. Respiratory therapists, physician and occupational therapists and pediatric pharmacists also may be part of your child's medical team.
