Pediatric Critical Care Focus Group

The Children’s Hospital of Illinois participates in the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) Pediatric ICU Focus Group and the Pediatric ICU database; within these groups, we have the opportunity to work with other nationally recognized children’s hospitals to improve the quality and safety of our care and to improve outcomes for our patients.

The Pediatric ICU at Children’s Hospital of Illinois has been successful in dramatically reducing hospital-acquired ventilator- and central venous line-related infections due to our participation in these CHA groups and we continue to work to reduce hospital acquired infections and delays in discharge or transfer to other units within the Children’s Hospital.
