Hemby Children's Hospital

Pediatric intensive care unit

Providing round-the-clock, high-tech care

Children requiring our highest level of care during their treatment and recovery receive special care in our pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), located within the walls of Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital.

A team of pediatric intensivists works closely with specially trained pediatric nurses, respiratory therapists and other healthcare professionals to provide round-the-clock, high-tech care in a compassionate environment that supports parents and encourages them to take an active role during their child's hospital stay. Our child life staff is also available to provide comfort and distraction to patients and families requiring a stay in the PICU.
