Critical Care Services

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

The birth of a baby is a wonderful yet very complex process. Many physical and emotional changes occur for mother and baby. Your baby's body systems must work together in a new way. Sometimes, a baby has difficulty making the transition to the world. Being born prematurely, having a difficult delivery, or birth defects can make these changes more challenging. Fortunately for these babies, special newborn care is available.

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)

When your child needs special care for a critical health condition, you can be assured that he or she can be in no better hands than those of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Covenant Children's.

Our physicians, nurses and other care professionals are expertly trained and skilled in caring for children under serious or life-threatening circumstances. They are equipped to deal with critical health situations and have the skills to quickly assess and treat your child to achieve the best possible outcome.

A stay in the PICU can be frightening and stressful for you and your child alike. Many of the terms, procedures and pieces of equipment used in the PICU may be unfamiliar, and this can add to the stress of your child being critically ill or injured. Our PICU staff will do whatever they can to help reduce this stress and uncertainty. Our family-centered care philosophy ensures that you are kept up-to-date about your child's condition, and receive the information you need to make informed choices about his or her care.

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO)

ECMO is an extracorporeal technique of providing both cardiac and respiratory support to a patient whose heart and lungs are so severely diseased or damaged that they can no longer serve their function. Covenant's ECMO program is available 24/7 serving the NICU and PICU.
