The Pediatric Inpatient Care Units care for children who require hospitalization to perform testing and to provide care that cannot be done while your child remains at home. Recognizing that this is a stressful time for child and family, our goal is to provide care to your child in a family centered environment that meets all your needs while incorporating you, the parent, as an equal member of the care team.
Inpatient services units are staffed by highly-skilled professionals who work as a team to provide comprehensive care to children from infancy through young adulthood (up to the 22nd birthday). Our specialists include pediatricians, intensivists, pediatric sub-specialists, registered professional nurses and advanced practice nurses with specialized education in pediatrics and pediatric sub-specialties. As a teaching institution, doctors in training (residents), medical students, and nursing students participate as members of our multi-disciplinary team under the direct supervision of our staff.
Other team members include social workers/discharge planners, child life specialists (including movement, creative arts, music, and pet therapy experts), psychologists, a pediatric pain team, education specialist, nutritionist, pediatric pharmacist, and a dedicated team of support staff all of whom are committed to making your stay in the hospital as stress free as possible.
