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?
