The Pediatric Setting

In our pediatric unit, semi-private patient rooms include soft chairs, inviting colors, large windows, and home-like décor. Each patient room has a discreet child changing area and a large handicap accessible bathroom.

In the center of the unit is a play area for children who are well enough to leave their bedrooms. This play area is equipped with a TV, books, games, videos, a computer and toys. The play area includes a living room setting that allows families to spend time with their hospitalized child. Brothers and sisters are also welcome to visit.
