I am committed to high-quality, safe and compassionate care of all critically ill children in an intensive care setting, as well as caring for patients in our unique “Special Isolation Unit” at Texas Children’s Hospital. This includes not only patient care, but also guiding a highly-trained Special Response Team to care for children with any special infection, including viral hemorrhagic fevers.
