Unit Director: Dr. Brooks Rebecca
Location: 5th floor, Children Department A, Mt. Scopus Hospital
The unit was established 20 years ago within the pediatrics department. Patients of the department's unique areas of expertise (neurological problems, Familial Dysautonomia and chronic lung diseases) who require mechanical ventilation on an acute or semi-chronic basis make up most of the admissions. The unit also serves as a step-down unit of the Ein Kerem unit.
Within the Pediatric Intermediate Care Unit, there is a state-of-the-art Intermediate Respiratory Care Unit (IRCU). The IRCU was established in 2008 and has since changed the lives of patients and their families as well as the staff itself.
