Quality Care for our Littlest Patients
The St. Mary Medical Center Pediatric Unit is a secured unit to provide added safety for our pediatric population. We offer comprehensive care for our littlest patients.
The Pediatric Unit was established to care for sick or injured children, newborn through 14 years of age. We offer a wide range of basic pediatric and specialized care in a patient/family centered environment.
Patients and families are encouraged, educated and supported in participating in care and decision-making. Our comprehensive pediatric services include diagnostic care, physical examinations, laboratory tests and consultation with pediatric sub-specialists.
St. Mary’s multidisciplinary care team works closely with your child’s primary care physician, who will oversee your child’s care throughout hospitalization. Each team member has extensive experience treating children which ensures that your child receives the best care available and the quality that is a hallmark of St. Mary Medical Center.
Being hospitalized can be a scary and stressful time for adults, and even more so for children and their families, thus St. Mary’s nurses and care team are sensitive to this and do everything they can to make your child’s stay as worry-free as possible. The unit is child-friendly, colorful and equipped with toys, games and activities that can help keep your child entertained when they are feeling up to it or when they are able to spend time in the unit’s playroom.
St. Mary's Social Services Dept. and Spiritual Care Services are available 24 hours a day to assist in coping with children's illness.
