Pediatrics

Goryeb Children’s Hospital’s newly renovated Joan and Edward Foley Pediatric Intensive Care Unit offers advanced care and family-friendly amenities. The upgrades, which were partially funded by donations to the Foundation for Morristown Medical Center, doubled the size of the existing PICU and added six additional beds, so we can accommodate more patients. Diagnostic imaging is also easily accessible and we use the latest technology to provide rapid test results. Additionally, all patient rooms are private and have gaming consoles, sleeping arrangements for parents, and separate bathrooms and showers.
