On June 28, the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) completed its move to a 16-bed unit on level 5 of the Forest zone. There are now a total of 32 PICU beds, 16 on Forest 5 and 16 on Forest 6.
Next, we are planning for the August 30 move of Medical Unit beds to Forest level 4. When the move is complete, we’ll have a total of 48 Medical Unit beds, 32 on Forest 4, and 16 on Forest 5.
After last weekend’s PICU move, Seattle Children’s now has 371 licensed beds, with 314 beds in operation. After the Medical Unit move is complete, 313 beds will be in operation.
