MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Baptist Memorial Hospital opened its first Pediatric Intensive Care Unit on Tuesday.

The 12-bed unit will be housed in the Spence and Becky Wilson Baptist Children's Hospital on Humphrey's and have state of the art equipment to help care for children with severe health issues.

When designing the rooms, the hospital decided to provide enough space for parents to stay with their children.
