About us:


The Whitney Houston Intensive Care Unit is a thirteen bed multidisciplinary unit which provides high technology intervention for children who have experienced trama or other life-threatening illnesses. Children in respiratory failure can be managed with conventional or high frequency oscillation. Additionally, the unit is capable of providing non-invasive ventilation for patients with neuromuscular ventilatory failure, invasive hemodynamic monitoring for those requiring cardiovascular support and the monitoring and treating of patients with raised intracranial pressure. The PICU supports the only pediatric liver transplantation program in the state of New Jersey as well as the state wide trauma center of University Hospital. Air and ground transport teams are available to children in need of specialized intervention who are brought to University Hospital from throughout New Jersey.
