Pediatric Inpatient Care (PICU)
No one wants a child to become seriously ill or injured. Since 1979, Plantation General Hospital has been caring for critically ill children in our Pediatric Unit. From the reassuring compassion of our doctors and well-trained, skilled staff to the pleasant, kid-friendly, Noah's Ark design of our 28-bed Pediatric Unit and 8-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, we'll do everything possible to make you and your child feel comfortable.
What is a PICU?
PICU is short for pediatric intensive care unit. Like an ICU, a PICU has the necessary medical equipment to care for critically ill children.
Highly qualified physicians and experienced pediatric critical care nurses and therapists staff the Plantation General Hospital’s PICU. When your child is seriously ill, you can take comfort in knowing that at Plantation General Hospital's PICU top-notch pediatric critical care experts will care for them.
The physicians that staff Plantation General Hospital’s PCIU completed pediatric residencies after obtaining their medical degrees and then continued their education with more specialized training in pediatric critical care. You can rest assured that Plantation General's PICU staff has a level of proficiency beyond most other area facilities.
We offer a full range of diagnostic services including MRI, CT scan, nuclear imaging studies, and EEGs, as well as monitoring for intravenous or intramuscular medication administration. Ask your child's doctor for a referral or call us for more details.
We offer overnight accommodations for a parent or guardian so you can stay close to your child. We have a refrigerator and microwave for preparing your child's favorite snack, cable TV and video games.
