Critical Care

Smiling nurse and infantHospital-based pediatric critical care specialists, also known as pediatric intensivists, provide 24-hour care to children in unstable critical condition due to a serious illness or injury. Pediatric intensivists care for children experiencing conditions such as:

  • traumatic injury
