Our pediatric critical care specialists provide state-of-the-art care for infants, children and adolescents with life-threatening medical and surgical conditions, around the clock. Affiliated with top-ranked NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital, our Pediatric Critical Care Center is staffed by a full team of intensivists, critical-care nurses and other health-care professionals specifically trained to care for the needs of a critically-ill child. Each child's condition is under the 24-hour supervision of the Center's team of physicians, with direct patient care provided by on-site intensivists and fellows in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. Our critical-care nurses are trained and experienced in caring for critically ill children and, with the Center's physicians, develop and implement the child's treatment plan. Our professional team also includes respiratory and physical therapists, social workers, nutritionists and Child Life Specialists. Parents are regarded as central members of the team and are encouraged to spend as much time as possible with their child.
