Critical Care


Specialized Programs

Our historical contribution includes the pioneering work and early adoption, evaluation and refinement of extracorporeal support technologies for critically ill children (HFO, CRRT, ECMO, Berlin Heart and Novalung). We are recognized for excellent patient outcomes. Our care of patients with complex patho-physiology such as congenital diaphragmatic hernia is emulated around the world. We lead in the care of other complex patient populations including bone marrow and multi-organ transplantation. 

In 2010, we provided care to over 1,200 admitted patients and their families. As the largest PICU in Canada, our patients are from within Ontario, across Canada and other countries. They are amongst the sickest and most complex.
