Heywood Hospital offers comprehensive pediatric services and referrals for children, newborns through adolescents. Caring for children and their families is the focus of our dedicated, experienced pediatrics staff, including nurses accredited in Pediatric Advanced Life Support. Our goal is to help children get well by offering the most current technologies and treatments and to make the hospital stay as safe and comfortable as possible.
The Pediatric Sub-unit is located in Watkins II and offers five inpatient beds. Each room is private and provides a sleeping couch to allow for a parent to stay overnight with the child. A playroom is available with age appropriate toys, DVD and a Wii.
We offer a Pediatric Hospitalist Program – a small group of experienced pediatrician who are available to provide care 24/7 to children during their hospital stay. This group of pediatricians is available, if needed, for all children admitted to the hospital.
Children undergoing same day surgery are also cared for by our trained Pediatric Nurses, who help to prepare the child for surgery and upon completion of the first phase of recovery, will then care for them until discharged.
Our focus is on personalization, putting children and their parents at ease by providing compassionate care in a warm and comforting environment.
