What is a Pediatrician

While primary care providers can treat patients of all ages, pediatricians specialize in the physical, emotional and social development of children – from birth through adolescence.

Your child’s pediatrician can:

  • Treat illnesses.
  • Provide immunizations.
  • Offer advice on keeping your kids healthy and common parenting issues, such as discipline and toilet training.
  • Refer your child to a specialist if needed.

If your child needs hospitalized

For most acute illnesses your child can be treated by his or her medical provider in the clinic. If your child needs to be admitted to the hospital, you’ll find expert care in our pediatric unit.

Certified Nursing Team

Our nurses are Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) certified and will closely monitor your child’s vital signs with our cardiac apnea monitors in every room.

Your comfort

For your comfort, every room features a couch that converts into a bed for extra comfort while you stay with your child. Please ask your nurse for extra linens and toiletries you may need.
