ICU Super-Heros Day: On 22-10-2016

Children who recovered after serious illnesses were invited to the hospital for a celebration of their endurance and courage.

There was a magic show and other activities.

Children are the future of any society. The first dedicated Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) in the private sector in Chennai was started at The CHILDS Trust Hospital in 1991. Over the years it has grown to 17 beds and will soon be expanded to 21 beds.

This is a multidisciplinary PICU that caters to children who are seriously ill due to any cause, such as severe infections, asthma, diabetes, head injuries, cancer, seizures etc.. Thousands of children have been treated in this unit, which caters to all segments of society from Chennai and the neighboring areas. The unit also started the first formal training program in Pediatric Intensive Care in Chennai. It undertakes long distance transport of critically ill children using a mobile PICU.

We celebrated an “Intensive Care Superheroes Day” in order to honor and felicitate the children who have braved life-threatening illnesses and are now doing well.
