At Valley Presbyterian Hospital's Pediatric Care Center (PCC), we recognize
that children need specialized care for every age and stage of development.
That's why we bring together an integrated team of pediatricians,
pediatric nurses, respiratory therapists, case managers and others who
focus exclusively on the care and treatment of children's conditions.
On admission to our 25-bed unit, your child will be assigned to a dedicated
pediatric hospitalist. Pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians who work
in the hospital and specialize in caring for infants, children and teens
during their hospital stay. The hospitalist will meet with you and your
child, assess your child's medical history, and recommend a treatment
plan. He or she will be available to you throughout your child's hospital
stay to keep you well informed and answer any questions you may have.
Our pediatric physicians represent the following sub specialties:
- Pediatric Cardiology
- Pediatric Ear, Nose, Throat
- Pediatric Infectious Disease
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
- Pediatric Neurology
- Pediatric Orthopedics
- Pediatric Surgery
Another key member of our patient care team is our child-life specialist,
a trained professional who helps your child and your family to overcome
the challenges of serious medical conditions and treatments.
We support and treat a wide variety of medical conditions by providing:
- Child life services
- Critical and urgent care
- Developmental/behavioral care
- Rehabilitation services
- Well child and adolescent care
Our Center fulfills the medical and emotional needs of children and their
families and provides a safe, comfortable environment for our expert medical
team to provide treatment. Patient rooms accommodate family members so
you can stay with your child. The Center's playroom is equipped with
books, puzzles, board and video games, art supplies and more. Because
of our family-centered approach, our physicians and care team work closely
with you to develop treatment plans and keep you well informed.
