Creighton University Medical Center and Children’s Hospital & Medical Center have joined forces to enhance pediatric critical care.
Under the partnership, which recently took effect, Creighton accepts pediatric trauma patients as a designated Level 1 trauma center. Intensive care infants will receive care at Creighton until fully stabilized.
Once stable, patients will be taken to the pediatric intensive care until at Children’s.
As the only pediatric specialty health care center in Nebraska, Children’s provides 24/7, in-house staffing by pediatric doctors who specialize in intensive care.
