Dedicated Specialists




Inpatient Services

Being hospitalized is stressful for both the child who is the patient and his or her family. The inpatient unit at the Children’s Hospital is specially designed to help minimize that stress and to encourage family participation in their child’s care. Private patient rooms have their own bathrooms as well as Internet access and flat screen TVs, sleeping facilities for parents and guardians, room service, and a family kitchen area.  This helps to make the experience as pleasant as possible in a healing and soothing environment. While hospitalized, children are cared for by a team of caregivers that includes board-certified pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists, advanced practice nurses, highly skilled and trained staff nurses, patient care techs, social workers, child life specialists, respiratory therapists, nutritionists and other healthcare providers as needed. 
 
The units in the children’s hospital include a general pediatric unit, a hematology/oncology/bone marrow transplant unit, epilepsy monitoring unit, a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), as well as a separate pediatric emergency department located inside the children’s hospital.  Our three intensive care areas (PICU, NICU and pediatric emergency room) are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by dedicated, board certified physicians. 
  • Having a child in the hospital can be scary. You may have questions about treatment or want to know more about his or her condition. We encourage family participation in care and open communication. Your child’s doctors and other caregivers are always available to talk with you.
