If your child’s condition doesn’t require intensive care, he or she can receive complete, routine nursing care in the Pediatric Unit. Pediatric Unit nurses are well experienced in attending to a variety of illnesses and conditions, and registered nurses have been certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). Special monitoring is available for children who require a higher level of care, and special programs and features are available for both parents and children alike.
Glenwood’s 13-bed Pediatric unit, conveniently located in our Women’s and Children’s Pavilion, cares for inpatients, ambulatory surgical patients, and short-stay patients with a wide range of medical conditions. It is designed especially for the care and comfort of children, from newborn through adolescence.
