Intensive Care Services


Each year, Intensive Care Services at LLUCH admit more than 3,000 infants and children for round-the-clock medical care. Of these, nearly half of them are transported in via ambulance, helicoptor, or airplanes from other medical facilities throughout the southwestern United States. Out of the 256 Children's Hospital beds, more than half are dedicated to Intensive Care Services. Intensive Care Services encompasses four specialized areas:

  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: treating our tiniest patients, this unit cares for babies facing complications due to extreme prematurity and other conditions.
  • Pediatric Intensive Care Unit: this unit provides advanced care to children from 0 to 18 years of age, treating a variety of medical conditions, traumatic injuries, or those recovering from surgery.
  • Pediatric Cardiac and Solid Organ Intensive Care Unit: this unit cares for children recovering from heart surgery, or heart, liver, or kidney transplants.
  • Step-Down Pediatric Intensive Care Unit:  a transition unit for children who are recovering from surgeries and other health conditions.


Together the pediatric intensive care beds make our pediatric intensive care unit one of the largest in the country.
