Critical Care Tower

The Borowy Family Children's Critical Care Tower expands and enhances our ability to serve our growing community's most medically complex children.

The 7-story, 225,000-square-foot building uses the latest technology available, and is home to all our intensive care units in one building, including:

  • Neonatal Intensive Care Center
  • Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
  • Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit
  • Neuro-Intensive Care Unit

Comfort, Care and Healing

Spacious, Private Rooms
Families can spend a lot of time in an intensive care unit with their child, so comfort is important. Each room is furnished with a private bathroom with shower, comfortably sleeps two parents and maximizes natural light, which helps to promote well-being in children, infants and postpartum mothers.

Healing Arts
Throughout the building, visitors will find art in the lobby, critical care units and every patient room to inspire and uplift children and families as they heal.

Advanced-level technology and equipment, making it state-of-the-art in every way.

  • Specialized MRIs for Intensive Care Patients

    • This MRI inside the Neonatal Intensive Care Center allows parents to remain close to their baby, has less noise, and eliminates the risks, challenges, time and added stress of transporting critically ill babies to another area of the hospital for scans.
    • A portable MRI allows our team to do some neuro-imaging tests in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, at the bedside.
  • Interactive Experience for Patients and Families

    • The GetWell Network lets kids and parents in our PICU, NICUs and CVICU be involved in their care through an interactive system of educational videos, entertainment, care plans and more.
    • Caregivers tailor content to the patient's needs, delivering information about your child's care and condition straight to the in-room TV.

Surrounding Both Mom & Baby with Care

Wolfson Children’s and Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville share a downtown campus, with the NICU just steps away from delivery rooms. That means mom and baby are both cared for under one roof, making it the ideal place to deliver your baby during a high-risk pregnancy.

Care in Every Detail

The right environment can help the healing process and create better outcomes for kids. That's why we created mockup rooms before even starting construction to ensure the design of the space was just right. Doctors, nurses, hospital staff and parents gave their input on what worked and what didn't, resulting in a setting that is better for families, better for staff and better for children.
