HSHS St. Vincent Children's Hospital partnered with Advanced ICU Care® (AICU) to offer a tele-ICU program

​PICU Information

  • All nurses have special certification and training in pediatric care from appropriate pain relief techniques to performing special procedures.

  • A pediatric case manager and pediatric registered dietitian are resources to parents who have questions or concerns about their child’s care or progress.

  • Pediatric-trained physical, occupational, and speech therapists provide inpatient and outpatient therapy based on the child’s treatment plan.

  • If a child needs home care, home health-trained pediatric nurses will come to the child’s home to help provide treatment.

  • Transportation from outlying areas. Children who need medical care at HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital may arrive in an ambulance, via Eagle III* with specially trained transport nurses, or via ambulance. This close collaboration allows for seamless care, which starts with pickup at the referring facility, and continues with care in St. Vincent’s Emergency Department or one of the Pediatric Units.

    *Eagle III is a joint effort of St. Vincent Hospital, Bellin Hospital, and County Rescue Services.

Infection Control Measures


Hand washing is the single most important measure you can take to control infection in the ICU. Please wash your hands using soap and water or the water-less hand washing solution provided in the module before entering and after leaving patient rooms.

If your loved one requires special isolation, you will be required to wear protective coverings, including a gown, gloves and/or a mask. Staff will be happy to assist you.

•  Visiting hours are open throughout the day.

•  Number of visitors for each patient is limited to two at any given time and they may be asked to leave the bedside during change of shift report.

•  After 8 pm, no more than two visitors per patient may remain in the ICU Visitors Lounge.
