Our nurses are specially trained in pediatric care and certified in pediatric
advanced life support. We also have pharmacists trained in children's

who specialize in treating children. 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.
