The pediatric critical care service at Atlantic Health System Children's Health provides comprehensive medical care to children, from infants to young adults with acute life-threatening illness and injury.
The Joan and Edward Foley Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center is a nine-bed unit where children stay for postoperative management after major pediatric surgical procedures including neurosurgical, trauma and orthopedic procedures. All pediatric medical and surgical specialties at our children's hospital are available for consultation in the PICU.
The critical care team of the PICU is made up of a team of caregivers from various specialties to provide your child with the best possible care. Our pediatricians and physicians are board-certified in pediatric critical care and provide 24-hour coverage. They have advanced medical training and extensive experience, which allows them to administer the unique medical care that children in a PICU require.
Growing Forward | Goryeb Children’s Hospital
Goryeb Children’s Hospital provides expert pediatric care and access to state-of-the-art treatments, but we’ve outgrown the space needed to meet the demands of our youngest patients. Recent renovations doubled the size of our Joan and Edward Foley Pediatric Intensive Care Unit from nine beds to 15 and expanded our Vanech Family Pediatric Inpatient Unit and Ryan Pediatric Inpatient South Unit from 26 beds to 34. Additionally, outpatient services were relocated to 55 Madison Avenue, where families have easy access to care and free parking. The final phase of construction will increase the capacity of our Valerie Fund Children’s Center. It includes a combination of eight open and private infusion bays, four new exam rooms, a spacious procedure room and a family-friendly waiting area. The hospital has undertaken these projects in multiple phases of construction and even though some are complete or near completion, the fundraising continues.
