Welcome to

Cardiac Nursing at The Children's Hospital at Montefiore


Pediatric Critical Care Unit

The PCCU is a 26-bed unit staffed by pediatric nurses who have been specially trained to provide care to critically ill children. Our nurses routinely care for children who require artificial heart and lung mechanical support devices, who have undergone hybrid procedures and heart transplantation, or who have pulmonary and chest wall defects. We also care for children with nonsurgical cardiac conditions such as arrhythmias, myocarditis and heart failure. We are committed to patient satisfaction and the development of best practices based on evidence-supported research. Education and experience are top priorities for our staff. We have nurses who hold advanced degrees, including nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists and nurse educators. We currently have an organized and structured Professional Practice council in which policies and practices are routinely updated to ensure that our patients receive optimum care.
