It's a proven fact...healthy kids have an advantage in school, and in life. But sometimes our kids get sick or hurt. And when the unexpected happens-trust Providence.
While a hospital can be a scary place for a child, it is comforting to know that our staff will work to make you and your child as comfortable as possible. When your child is a patient at Providence, both you and your child benefit from a compassionate staff who is dedicated to excellence.
At Providence you will find pediatric experts - pediatricians, pediatric nurses, technicians and support staff - who administer the most current technologies and treatments in caring for your child; and, at the same time, know and understand the unique needs of children-and their sometimes worried parents.
Located on the 3rd floor of the Health Center, a whimsical Wizard of Oz mural fills the pediatric unit with color and joy. These beautiful scenes were added in 2008 and are designed to make your child's hospital stay as comfortable as possible...and to remind us all of the importance of courage! Each child also receives a stuffed Toto dog during their stay.
Highlights of the pediatric unit include:
