Behind-the-scenes look at the PICU

A videographer and reporter from USA Today recently received permission to visit our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) within UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

Their mini documentary captured a day in the life of our faculty and staff, showcasing what makes our team great and how we continue to fight for patients every day, despite the challenges that we face because of the pandemic and surge in respiratory illnesses.


  1. Powerful messages to communicate about Covid risks. Mixing the Covid message with complex congenital heart disease did not clearly advance this theme, but surely added to the somber tone.

  2. Team PICU and family members- thank you for sharing your powerful stories. We are grateful for the care provided in your unit.
