We treat severely ill children and adolescents under 16.

Our patients are admitted on an emergency basis without referrals.

Our largest patient groups are

  • surgical trauma and operation patients requiring intensive care
  • severe infections
  • spasm patients
  • diabetic ketoacidosis patients
  • full-term infants.

We are the only paediatric intensive care ward in the wellbeing services county of Southwest Finland. There is also a resuscitation group in our ward, who perform all resuscitations of the U-hospital.

An important part of our work is to take the whole family into account and to support the family members. In our ward, the parents can participate in the treatment of their child by assisting the staff.

If required, the patient's treatment can include special workers such as physiotherapists, social workers and dietitians.
