The Children's Hospital pediatric inpatient unit provides a full range of medical and surgical care for infants, children and adolescents. Here, the patient and family are the true focus of medical and nursing care.
Our bright, cheerful space provides all single-bed rooms for our inpatients. These larger, more ergonomic rooms include a full bathroom and child-friendly shower, and provide plenty of space for the patient's family members and care team. Each inpatient room is also equipped with a video game system; 42-inch flat-screen television; sleeper sofa for parents; storage with a combination lock; and a small table for paperwork, homework or playing games. Computers are also located in each room for staff documentation.
Play groups are arranged by our full-time child-life specialists to help patients and their families make the psychological and emotional adjustment to hospitalization. And our board-certified pediatricians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Our family-centered approach to care is designed to meet the needs of our patients and foster partnerships between families and health care professionals.
