The Joan and Edward Foley Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Goryeb Children's Hospital provides award winning care to infants, children and adolescents with life-threatening illness and injury. In fact, we have received a gold-level Beacon Award for Excellence from the American Association of Critical Care Nurses.
Our 15-bed, state-of-the-art PICU provides continuous monitoring of patients' respiratory, cardiac and neurological functions. Each child's room is designed with easy access to radiological tests, such as X-ray and ultrasound, and our computerized equipment allows for instant review of diagnostic and laboratory results.
Amenities include private room with telephones, Internet access, televisions, and CD, DVD and Play Station players. Parents may choose to sleep at their child's bedside in a pull-out bed chair or rest in specially designed Ronald McDonald sleeping rooms that are attached to the PICU. These rooms are equipped with a separate bathroom and shower area. A family waiting room area provides snacks, coffee, juice, refrigerator, television and a computer with Internet access.
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.
