Our 31-bed, state-of-the-art CICU at Boston Children’s Hospital is one of the largest in the country, managing children with a wide range of congenital and acquired heart disease. The Heart Center, including the CICU, is scheduled to transition to a new clinical building in June 2022. The CICU will expand from its current 31 beds to 48 beds, requiring 2 in-house attending physicians each night. In 2021, our CICU treated over 1500 newborns, infants, children, and adults with a variety of congenital and acquired pediatric heart diseases. Available therapies include all forms of pharmacologic support, mechanical ventilation, mechanical circulatory support (ECMO and VAD) and renal replacement therapies. Our referral base includes local, regional, national, and international patients.
Full-time critical care physicians will work closely with cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and nurses in a collaborative practice within the Heart Center. Resources for career development are readily available through the Department of Cardiology. Advancement through clinical and/or academic activities is strongly encouraged and supported.
