Paediatric Critical Care
Providing system level planning to strengthen Ontario’s paediatric critical care system.
The paediatric critical care system in Ontario is comprised of five Paediatric Academic Health Sciences Centres. These hospitals have the capacity and capabilities to provide critical care services for paediatric patients (1 month – 18 years old).

The Paediatric Academic Health Sciences Centres are committed to providing timely access to quality care for paediatric patients within their catchment areas. In addition, representatives from these hospitals share their expertise with physicians across the province through the Extramural Paediatric Critical Care Response Team (PCCRT) Program. This program enables virtual consultations between paediatric intensivists and physicians in community hospitals to support patient care.
