Children’s Hospital PICU is the highest level of intensive care for children in the region.  The staff and physicians are especially trained to provide immediate, 24/7 care for the most critically ill or injured children. 

The donations raised to support the services at the Children’s Hospital were collected from various events and programs hosted by the museum.  Since its opening in May 2010, the independent, non-profit Hixson Flight Museum remains dedicated to aviation education while supporting Children's Hospital at Erlanger.
