The Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Unit (PCCCU)

Hadassah Hospital, Ein Kerem 

CHW is proud to support the PCCCU. The new, state-of-the-art Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Unit, located on Level Two of the Sarah Wetsman Davidson (SWD) Hospital Tower, is the only one of its kind in Jerusalem. Pediatric cardiac critical care patients have unique needs, which is why we have a dedicated unit, distinct from the general critical care unit. For these infants, precise diagnoses and immediate, advanced treatments are critical. That’s why our compassionate, dedicated medical professionals at Hadassah are here. We are here to save lives – to help keep the tiniest, most fragile hearts pumping strong.

Congenital heart defects comprise the most common type of birth defect. Currently, the global incidence of congenital heart disease at birth has been estimated at eight to 12 cases per 1,000 live births. These statistics highlight the overwhelming demand for advanced pediatric cardiac critical care.

What makes the PCCCU so special?

  • Caring pediatric cardiac specialists are available 24/7 to deal with emergencies, prescribe medications, and monitor patients.
  • The location of our unit in the SWD Hospital Tower, adjacent to the PICU and our internationally renowned Heart Institute, positions it within one of the most advanced surgical towers in the world.
  • Patient rooms are fully equipped with state-of-the-art cardiac equipment not available in the regular PICU.
  • Nursing staff is specially trained to care for young patients with a heart defect.
  • Approximately 200 catheterization procedures performed annually, making our team highly experienced.
  • Four single-patient isolation rooms, with four additional rooms were recently opened. There are now eight fully equipped rooms.
