Alert: St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children Opens New ICU Unit; Trauma and Critical Care Services Resume

Effective March 17 St. Christopher’s Hospital resumed Critical Care and Level 1 Trauma Services following the opening of an eight-bed pediatric intensive care unit called PICU East. The PICU East unit is in a separate section of the hospital and provides additional capacity for critically ill pediatric patients.  Specially trained physicians, nurses and other clinicians will staff the unit. 

The hospital had temporarily closed its PICU West unit to new patients in consultation with the Philadelphia Department of Health after a physician was diagnosed with a presumed case of COVID-19.  All patients, families, and staff who may have been exposed were identified through contact tracing, and employees were instructed to self-quarantine at home until the 14-day incubation period is over. 

 St. Christopher’s continues its mission of advancing the health and well-being of the pediatric patients and families we serve.
