The Division of Medicine Critical Care (MCC) at Boston Children's Hospital provides pediatric medical care to promote the health and safety of both critically ill children and those who require a higher level of care than can be provided on the general pediatric wards. This care is delivered on two distinctly unique units: the Intermediate Care Program (ICP) and the Medicine Intensive Care Unit (MICU). Unlike other centers of its kind, the MCC at Boston Children's cares for children in both critical and intermediate care beds on the same floor, which are covered by the same physician group, allowing children to move seamlessly between each unit as needed.
Our program consists of physicians from a broad spectrum of subspecialties who are dedicated to pushing the leading edge of research as well as advancing the care of critically ill children both within and well beyond the walls of Boston Children's. The team specializes in complex patients and offers a broad range of treatments for acute and chronic respiratory conditions, sepsis, nutritional failure, as well as critical complications of metabolic diseases and endocrine disorders.

The broad mission of the MCC is to provide the appropriate level of care to meet the medical and emotional needs of both the children and the families cared for in our units. In addition to providing the highest level of care to our pediatric patients, we seek to empower families in a way that will guide them once they are able to leave Boston Children's.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
