At Glenwood, we take your child’s health as seriously as you do. That’s why we provide comprehensive health care services for children. We offer your children the very best care possible. We also want to make your stay with us as pleasant as possible. The Pediatric Unit is conveniently located within the Women and Children’s Pavilion.
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. We understand how stressful a hospital stay can be for children and their parents.
