Pediatric care in San Jose, CA

Happy, healthy children are an important part of our community, which is why Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose has a comprehensive program of healthcare services designed for children. We are proud to offer family-centered pediatric care that addresses everything from basic treatment to surgical procedures. We take the best care of your littlest loved ones with an onsite neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), inpatient pediatric care, pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), and children's surgery center.

Both the pediatrics unit and PICU are secured with controlled access for the safety and security of our patients.

Focused on the unique needs of children

We work in partnership with your family and your physician to ensure your child's social, development, and medical needs are being met. You can rest assured that Good Samaritan Hospital offers service from specialists who truly care about helping your child recover. We are staffed and equipped to handle even the sickest children thanks to our many highly qualified, board-certified pediatricians and subspecialists.

Involving the whole family

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 it can be.

Children's Surgery Center

We know that a child's surgical needs are much different than an adult's needs, which is why we provide innovative and personalized services that reflect these different needs. Good Samaritan Hospital makes it a priority to prepare for your child's unique needs in a way that will ease their anxiety and help them to have a better experience overall.

This is why our children's surgery center has been designed specifically for pediatric patients. Whether your child is coming in for an outpatient procedure or is an inpatient at the hospital, our expert team will provide high-quality care appropriate to their individual needs. Each team member is trained and experienced in making your child feel more comfortable and at ease before, during and after the procedure.

All nurses in our Children's Surgery Center are certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support, giving you the peace of mind and certainty you need while your child undergoes their procedure.
