Ventura County now has its first Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, which opened its doors for patients for the first time today.
The PICU is located in the Ventura County Medical Center. PICU’s work like traditional intensive care units, but have specialized personnel, and equipment geared to help seriously injured, or ill children.
The Medical Center’s PICU is the second in the region. Cottage Hospital, in Santa Barbara has had one in operation for years.
