    If a child has a life-threatening acute illness or organ failure, our pediatric intensive care team goes into action. Working in the state-of-the-art Heinrich A. Werner, MD, Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine (PICU), our team treats and monitors critically ill children (newborns to 18 years) for a range of problems, everything from burns to trauma injuries and cardiovascular surgery to neurosurgery. The critical care team specializes in stabilizing critically ill children after surgery or serious injury and illness, so they can get back to the important work of healing. Once their condition is stable, patients return to the care of their primary care team.
