Critically ill children with life-threatening medical and surgical conditions are cared for in dedicated intensive care units at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. They include:
- Our 20-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, which provides sophisticated monitoring for children with a variety of illnesses and conditions.
- Our 12-bed Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, which specializes in the care of children of all ages with congenital and acquired heart conditions.
Both units are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by pediatric critical care specialists.
