The Pediatric Cardiac/Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit (PCICU)

The Mount Sinai pediatric facilities include a four-bed pediatric cardiac/cardiothoracic intensive care unit (PCICU), a sixteen-bed pediatric ICU, a 46-bed neonatal ICU, 68 pediatric inpatient beds, and a pediatric emergency room. The Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (PCICU) is located on the third third floor of the Kravis Children’s Hospital, close to the cardiac operating room and catheterization laboratory. Outpatient visits take place in the Annenberg Building, 3rd floor, Suite 3-50.

In promoting family-centered care, we have configured PCICU in a way that improves the flow of care within the hospital and allows young patients and their families to return to the regular ward environment as quickly as possible.

The PCICU is for all patients with congenital heart disease who need intensive care for conditions involving the heart, lungs or airways. It is also responsible for the care of children on extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and is staffed 24 hours a day by specially trained doctors, physician assistants, and nurses.

Our multidisciplinary team, under the leadership and supervision of a dedicated cardiac intensivist, includes intensive care doctors and award-winning nurses, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, physician assistants, ventilator technicians, physiotherapists, dieticians, pharmacists, chaplains, volunteers, and housekeepers.
