Pediatric unit: A place for children to heal
When it comes to caring for kids, our patients have come to expect the exceptional treatment Community Hospital North provides. The new pediatric unit was designed by kids and their parents, as well as doctors and nurses, combining the most advanced technology and highest level of clinical care with the special health and healing needs of kids.
Children told us how we could make their time at the hospital more comfortable. Our doctors and nurses provided insight into the latest treatment and technology. And parents told us that they wanted to maintain some family normalcy while having a child in the hospital and helped us identify how we could help.
Our pediatric unit houses 22 private and spacious family suites, so when a child needs care there's a comfortable place for mom and dad, too. Our suites are child friendly, while advanced technology and specialized doctors and staff are always close by. The suites are specifically designed to help restore the child's health, by including space for family members, activities, and some of the comforts of home.
