Parental involvement is another important part of what we do, and it is our focus to provide an education to prepare you, your child and your family for a safe, comfortable transition home.
Support for Families
We believe that parents, siblings, and other family members play a large role in the health and recovery of pediatric patients. In our family-centered model of pediatric care, we are committed to providing the education and support you and your family need to help make your child's hospitalization and recovery the best is can be.
Our Pediatric Unit has all-private rooms and full en suite bathrooms, as well as a chair in each room that converts to a comfortable single bed so one parent can be with a child at all times. For children on the road to recovery, a near-by playroom offers a break from the hospital routine.
Both the Pediatrics Unit and PICU are secured with controlled access for the safety and security of our patients.
