Pediatric Adolescent Unit



Because children also get sick...

New Hampshire’s Hospital for Children includes a Pediatric and Adolescent Care unit, with 15 private and two semi-private rooms for children with illness or injury. Children and their families are cared for by health care professionals with specialized knowledge and training in the care of children. Family-centered rounds take place every day, to insure that you are fully informed and involved in your child’s treatment and care. These rounds include physicians, nurses, pharmacists, nutrition and respiratory care, planning your child’s care together with you.


Just for children...

From decorations that are comforting to children and families, to specialized equipment for their needs, the Pediatric and Adolescent Unit is designed for the very special care of children. In addition, integrative medicine techniques help children cope with pain and stress using additional therapies such as music and guided imagery.

The team of professionals caring for children and families include:

  • Pediatric Hospitalist Physicians
  • Pediatric Specialist Physicians
  • Registered Nurses
  • Child-Life Specialists
  • Respiratory Therapists
  • Physical Therapists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Social workers
  • Licensed Nursing Assistants
  • Specialized Pediatric Pharmacists
  • Registered Nutritionists

At times of need...

Having a child in the hospital can be a very stressful time. The family and child may have fear and worry about the illness or injury. The family’s love and support are very important to the child’s well-being. The child and family are at the center of all the care and treatment provided at New Hampshire’s Hospital for children. We listen to you and plan care that is sensitive and supportive. We encourage each family to let us know ways we can help at this stressful time.
