There are five beds in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at McMaster Children's Hospital. Dr. Rob Lloyd is the Medical Director of the PICU. We ensure that the best possible care is provided to our unique patient population. Our staff recognize that critically ill or injured children are only one part of a family and we support a philosophy of family-centred care.
In the near future, the PICU will expand and move into a new facility. A new building on the northeast corner of the hospital will house the Pediatric and Adult Intensive Care Units. The shell is complete and work is in progress to transform the interior into a state-of-the-art medical facility.
