When your child has a neurological emergency, you want immediate help from a team of experts to get the best outcome possible. The Pediatric Neurocritical Care Program (PNCP) at St. Louis Children’s Hospital provides this timely, specialized care to critically ill children with neurological disorders, including head injury.

We focus on providing interventions that have been proven through research to limit potential side effects of neurologic emergencies that can affect your child’s quality of life after recovery.

Why Choose the Neurocritical Care Program?

Everything we do — from clinical care to research to education — is focused on one thing: improving outcomes for a child during a neurological emergency. And thanks to that focus, we’re leading the way in elevating care for kids in need of neurological critical care — here in St. Louis and across the country.
