As a patient at the Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children’s Health, your child may be admitted to one of the following inpatient units:
The General Pediatric Unit cares for children from infancy to young adulthood. It provides general care for an illness or after-care from surgery. Your child may need to be evaluated for a period of time, or monitored depending on his/her type of illness. The attending physician will determine the area in this Unit in which your child will receive the best and most appropriate care.
For more information, call (212) 746-0309.
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides a wide range of newborn services to extremely premature neonates and newborn infants requiring medical or surgical intervention. Infants are admitted to the NICU for many reasons. Your child’s medical team will determine if/and for how long it is necessary for your newborn to stay on this Unit. Your child will be cared for by our team of exceptional doctors, nurses, and other medical caregivers.
For more information, call (212) 746-0318.
The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit offers infants through young adults outstanding, comprehensive care for medical and surgical conditions that span the spectrum of critical illness, from severe infections, respiratory disorders and traumatic injuries, to post-operative care following cardiac and neurosurgical procedures. Medical care is provided by highly trained pediatricians and pediatric critical care physicians, working collaboratively with our patients’ primary care physicians and medical and surgical subspecialists. We emphasize a team approach and work closely with skilled pediatric critical care nurses and ancillary staff to deliver compassionate care in a family centered environment.
