Pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at Community Hospital North
Dr. Gupta helps to oversee all of the current pediatric inpatient services at Community Hospital North. He also helped to develop the new pediatric intensive care unit and service line that opened in January 2013. “The new PICU at Community North will allow critically ill children to receive the specialized care they need close to home.” says Gupta. Currently, children requiring care in a PICU are transferred out of their local area. With the opening of Community Hospital North’s PICU, many families facing the stress of having a critically ill child will no longer have the added burden of long, expensive commutes.
This will significantly expand the pediatric services that Community North will be able to offer the organization, the Northern Indianapolis community, and most importantly our patients and their families. The unit is family focused and believes in the importance of parental involvement. Supporting the intensivist is a multidisciplinary team of skilled professionals (hospitalists, nurses, respiratory therapists, etc.), specialty and sub-specialty physicians who provide the highest quality of care for patients and their families.
