Wesley’s 31-bed Pediatric Unit provides care for sick and injured children up to the age of 18. The entire unit, staffed by five board-certified pediatric hospitalists, is geared toward the needs of children and their families. All rooms are private and several rooms in the unit are designed for the comfort of teenaged patients.
Among our staff are child-life specialists who focus on helping children feel comfortable while in the hospital. They use age appropriate explanations of procedures, therapeutic play, and stress-reduction activities.
If a child has a chronic illness or needs special care after going home, we offer education programs to provide parents and caregivers with the knowledge and skills needed to help meet the child’s needs.
