Children's Hospital Colorado Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is located just off the main elevators on the 3rd floor. The Cardiac Intensive Care Unit is next door and the Heart Instiute is located on the opposite side of the atrium.
Our 26-bed PICU uses a collaborative approach to provide innovative, high-quality care to critically ill children and compassionate care to their families. The PICU team is comprised of board-certified pediatric critical care physicians, critical care nurses, respiratory therapists, clinical assistants, and inpatient service specialists, as well as a pharmacist, dietician, social worker, child life therapist, case manager and pastoral care professionals.
Helping Kids Heal
In addition to our world-class care team, the PICU design helps your child heal more quickly. To provide healing natural light, patients have private rooms with excellent exterior views. Reflected ceiling light throughout the PICU provides a softer, calmer environment, and acoustic ceiling tiles quiet the area by absorbing ambient sound, allowing children to get the rest they need.
Parents may request a sleep room in the hospitality suite or take advantage of the shower room on the 3rd floor to help stay rested and refreshed.
