Pediatric Day Medical Unit (PDAY)
The dedicated PDAY care team provides exceptional pediatric focused care with team members trained in pediatric sedation, pediatric infusion and pediatric chemotherapy. You child will interact with the team members during their treatments and often diversion therapy techniques are leveraged by both nursing and child life staff to ensure a pleasant experience during their visit.
Children’s Emergency Department
As a Level II pediatric trauma center, our dedicated children’s emergency department can care for the most complex injury or illness for newborns to teenagers. With 16 beds, our team of pediatric emergency medicine physicians and clinicians is available to you and your family 24/7 for a broad range of emergency conditions, including dental, eye, cardiac, orthopedic, traumatic injury and more.
When your child or teen needs diagnostic imaging — including X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, CT scan or fluoroscopy, our Children’s Radiology area features procedure rooms with not only the latest technologies but also diversion experiences. Using visuals, color and sound, the sensory environment chosen by your child helps with distraction and coping during procedures. Child Life specialists are also available to help children and families cope with the anxieties and fears associated with these procedures.
Ambulatory Surgery Unit (ASU)
When your child’s care requires an outpatient surgical procedure, we aim to make the process as easy, comfortable and family friendly as possible. Pre- and post-operative care can happen in ASU or PDAY. Our pediatric surgeons use the most appropriate surgical methods and minimally invasive approaches that are right for your child. Child Life Specialists are also available to assist your child in reducing fear during the pre- and post-operative period.
