Pediatric intensive care unit (PICU)

The Children's Center at our hospital offers kids in Plantation quality, individualized pediatric care. Children admitted to the hospital will be brought to The Children's Center. If critical care is needed for your child, we have an on-site PICU.

We know that having your child in the PICU is stressful. We provide overnight accommodations for parents, so you can stay with your child throughout their stay.
