Pediatric Special Care Unit Our 22-bed pediatric special care unit (PSU) is for children who need to stay in the hospital to receive cancer treatment or recover from surgery. The PSU team includes specially certified hematology/oncology physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, and child life specialists. They work together to ensure the best possible outcome for every child. This unit has a play room for young children and a special teen room. At The Children's Hospital at MUMC, we realize that even sick kids need a special place to play and hang out.
