Cardiac Intensive Care specialists busy at work in our CICU.
The Heart Institute is the home of the Midwest’s first comprehensive Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU). We provide state-of-the-art care for complex medical and surgical patients, from newborns to adults. Our CICU has five dual-boarded (pediatric cardiology and critical care medicine) and two advanced fellowship trained physicians to ensure the best possible outcome for your child.
The CICU team offers a wide range of expert care:
Our 25-bed CICU is a national leader in safety (procedure time-out) and improvement initiatives (situation awareness and OR to ICU handoff). We have one of the lowest rates of catheter-associated bloodstream infections in the nation.
The majority of our patients are admitted through transfer, either from referring hospitals and physicians or following cardiac surgery. We occasionally receive patients directly from a home setting after a physician’s referral.
Physicians interested in making a referral to the CICU should contact an attending physician through our referral page, or by calling Physician Priority Link at 513-636-4010 or the CICU at 513-636-4007.
The Cardiothoracic Surgery Clinic specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of infants and children with congenital cardiac malformations and malformations of the great vessels.
The Cardiac Catheterization service performs diagnostic and therapeutic catheterization. Some of the therapeutic procedures offered include dilation of narrowed heart valves and dilation and stenting of narrowed arteries and veins.
Our cardiology and heart surgery program was rated No. 5 in the country in the 2013-14 list of Best Children’s Hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report.
