FAMILY… a vital part of a child’s health, well being, and piece of mind. Having a child hospitalized can be very stressful; we encourage a parent to room in and for family and friends to visit (if appropriate and during visiting hours). For safety, other children/siblings Visiting must be supervised by an adult at all times.
PLAY… we have a playroom full of toys, games, books, puzzles and other activities for all ages. Toys can be taken to your child’s room. Play is a good way for children to deal with the stressors of being in the hospital and is an important part of development. Reading can also be very comforting and help pass the time for our young patients. VCR’s, videos, and video games, may be available as well.
PATIENT ROOMS… many of our rooms are private and all are equipped as appropriate to accommodate our wide range of patients’ ages and sizes and needs. Each room has a bed and/or crib as needed. We have special rooms for monitoring and safety as needed. We have high chairs, baby swings, infant seats, strollers, and baby bathtubs to help make things easier when caring for the little ones.
