Inpatient Hospital

Inpatient Hospital

Our modern inpatient Hospital features spacious patient rooms to accommodate the latest medical technology and accommodations for a parent to stay at the bedside. 

Our 56,000 square-foot inpatient Hospital accommodates 86 patients and includes a 46-bed Infant & Toddler and Post Neonatal/Post-Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for medically fragile patients, many of whom require weaning from mechanical ventilation. A 30-bed Pediatric & Adolescent Unit is designed to meet the unique needs of older children and teens. The majority of our inpatient rooms are doubles, but are designed such that each child and family has plenty of unique space. We believe strongly in the power of socialization as part of the healing process for both the child and family.

The 10-bed Traumatic Brain Injury Unit is equipped with the private, light-and sound-controlled rooms that this population requires for recovery, as well as dedicated space for occupational, physical and speech therapy right on the Unit that allows for a gradual transition to the larger Hospital environment.

The inpatient hospital also features positive pressure isolation rooms, with adjoining anterooms and special ventilation for increased protection against infection for patients with compromised immune systems. This enables us to get needed rehabilitation services underway quickly while a child continues with treatment.

Each floor has a parent alcove equipped with a refrigerator and microwave for parent use. 

We are happy to assist you if you are interested in making a referral.
