Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) staff inaugurate brand new Advanced Care Unit

Celebrations were in order on June 11th, when Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) staff officially inaugurated the brand new Advanced Care Unit at the Montreal Children’s Hospital at the Glen site. The 6-bed unit, located on the 8th floor of Block B, will be staffed by the PICU team and will be dedicated to caring for patients who have just undergone surgery and require closer monitoring. 

“The opening of this new unit will facilitate surgical access for patients, allowing us to continue to offer the best possible care to patients and their families,” said Dr. Saleem Razack, Chief of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, who commended the leadership of Dr. Tanya Di Genova, pediatric intensivist and Maggie Ruddy, Nurse Manager, on ensuring all processes were reviewed for the opening. Congratulations to the entire PICU team on achieving this exciting milestone!
