Children's Critical Care Service
The Children’s Critical Care unit provides four high-dependency beds for children from birth to 16 years of age who require close monitoring or specialised intensive care due to illness, accident or following a procedure.
The service is located within the Adult Intensive Care unit at Gold Coast University Hospital on level four and accepts patients from all Gold Coast areas, including northern NSW.
The clinicians and Children’s Critical Care team have intensive care experience and work in close collaboration with the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane.
Children with very complex conditions, including children with cardiac diseases or those requiring prolonged intensive care for life support, will be transferred to Brisbane for care.
