Pediatric Unit

We are a 13-bed, secure pediatric unit including dedicated pediatric intensive care rooms.  We provide care for children ranging in age from infancy through adolescence.  We have a team of specially trained providers to care for your child comprised of physicians (including board-certified pediatric surgeons, a pediatric intensivist, & a pediatric pulmonologist), nurses, therapists, pharmacists, dieticians and social workers. 

We also have an inpatient epilepsy monitoring unit where we use video EEG (electroencephalogram) equipment to monitor and examine seizure activity in children. 

We realize that going to the hospital for care can feel scary or overwhelming.  We will do everything we can to make the experience the best it can be including creating a safe & comfortable environment as well as an inclusive approach to providing care.  You are encouraged to ask questions at any time and be an active part of our team. 

Some resources that might be helpful in talking to your child (or their siblings or peers) about going to the hospital include:
