Critical Care Medicine


PICUThe Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine provides care for critically ill or injured children from birth to 18 years of age who require intensive care. The division's physicians, nurses and other clinical staff care solely for inpatients hospitalized at N.C. Children's Hospital in its 20-bed pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and therefore do not see patients by appointment.

The division's critical care physicians care for all PICU patients in collaboration with physicians with expertise in other pediatric subspecialties, including:

  • Cardiology
  • Pulmonology
  • Neurology
  • Nephrology
  • Endocrinology
  • Hematology/oncology

 The division also works closely with the surgical specialties, including:

  • General pediatric surgery
  • Cardiothoracic surgery
  • Otolaryngology
  • Orthopaedic surgery
  • Neurosurgery
  • Plastic surgery
  • Transplantation surgery


Our division is involved in many programs and initiatives to improve care at N.C. Children’s Hospital and beyond. Programs involving members of our division include:
