Acute Pediatric Unit


Our 18-bed Acute Pediatric Unit is staffed by nationally recognized pediatric experts who work closely with our team of subspecialists and a multi-disciplinary support staff to get the best possible results for our patients.


Our patient-focused environment allows us to provide services you may not find at a community hospital. For example, our child life specialist provides great comfort to our patients. By taking the time to explain the who, what, why, and how of each procedure and examination before it happens, children have a significantly reduced level of anxiety about their hospital stay. Siblings and parents find they, too, benefit from this extra care. Patients often look forward to visits from our child life specialist because they know they’ve found a friend among many new faces.
