Sioux Falls Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Services

The Miller Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Sanford Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls cares for critically ill and/or injured infants, children and adolescents in a setting with 12 beds, private family suites, and state-of-the-art equipment that rotates 360 degrees to allow immediate access to the patient. 

Support During a Difficult Time

We know that having a child in the PICU is frightening and stressful. Uncertainties and an unfamiliar environment can be overwhelming. We are here to provide medical and emotional support to parents, siblings and family members as well as to each child receiving care. Please ask questions. We are here to do our best to explain how your child is doing and encourage parents to be present and as involved as medically possible in the care of your child.

Meet Our Team

The unit is directed by two full-time, Fellowship Trained and Board Certified Pediatric Intensivists (pediatric physicians specifically trained to care for children in critical conditions) who are available 24/7.

A Healing Environment

Because of the critical nature of illness or injury in the PICU, we maintain a low lighting and low noise environment and limit the use of non-PICU wireless technology. We also limit patient visitors to immediate family members only. Parents are allowed to remain with their child round the clock.
