Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit

Specialized cardiac care when your child needs it most.

In the CICU, the highest level of care is given to infants, children, and young adults undergoing treatment for a variety of heart conditions. The CICU is staffed by UHealth pediatric intensivists and pediatric cardiologists trained in providing intensive care and cardiac specialty services.

The CICU not only provides the best medical care for sick children, but it also accommodates the needs of families and loved ones who are caring for them. The unit has private, comfortable rooms where parents or guardians are welcome to stay with their children, allowing them to play an active role in their treatment and recovery.

This unique and centralized environment optimizes daily interactions and care for our patients and their families. Our family-centered spaces include recreational areas, a computer lab, shower facilities, and a quiet room for parents to talk or discuss treatment options with their child’s physician.

The CICU is equipped with:

  • Two operating rooms, specifically designed for pediatric cardiac surgeries
  • State-of-the-art monitoring equipment
  • Cardiac catheterization lab, specifically designed for pediatric patients
