The Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Division is a dedicated team of Board-certified pediatric intensivists, certified nurse practioners, skilled critical care nurses, respiratory therapists, and other health practitioners working as an expert team to provide multi-disciplinary care for critically ill children. We are committed to excellence in education by teaching and training the brightest and most talented future physicians, and to advancing medical knowledge through basic science and clinical research.
Our 24 -bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Intermediate Care Unit (ICU) provide around-the-clock care for patients with life-threatening medical and surgical conditions, for those who are critically injured, and for those who suffer from acute and chronic conditions and illnesses. Our Maryland ExpressCare for Kids is a critical-care transport service providing inter-hospital transport of critically ill patients by ground and by air.
The division also offers a fellowship program in pediatric critical care medicine, supports the Pediatrics residency, and supports the training of bedside and advanced-practice nurses.
