Pediatric Critical Care

If your child is experiencing a life-threatening critical condition, such as a severe infection or serious injuries from an accident, you want the highest level of care available. Our pediatric critical care services provide state-of-the-art care for children and adolescents with life-threatening illnesses and injuries. In fact, other community hospitals throughout Kansas and Missouri often transfer their sickest children here.

Pediatric critical care is staffed by board-certified pediatric intensivists, trainees and highly skilled pediatric nurses. The six-bed unit is available 24 hours a day and serves approximately 600 patients a year. In addition, our physicians provide procedure sedation for inpatient and outpatient services.

We use a family-centered and multidisciplinary approach that not only provides efficient, cost-effective care, but also results in better clinical outcomes overall and greater success in treating patients.
