Our youngest patients benefit from the industry-leading care at MetroHealth Main Campus Medical Center’s hospital, in a setting designed especially for children.
Our pediatric inpatient care unit provides a full spectrum of care for your child from birth through age 18. Our physicians, specialists and nurses are specially trained to care for kids. We have a level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for premature and fragile babies, a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and 24 pediatric inpatient beds, in single occupancy rooms, for round-the-clock care that’s focused on your child’s healing.
We can treat your child in our inpatient unit for a variety of health concerns:
Specialists: We offer pediatric care in more than 15 specialty areas in our inpatient unit. Our specialists collaborate with your child’s pediatricians and other medical providers to make sure everyone works together in your child’s best interest.
Lab: Lab work is done on the unit in an area separate from the child’s room and processed in the hospital. All efforts are made by staff to reduce pain and anxiety for your child during procedures such as blood drawing.
Radiology: Radiology services (x-rays, CT scans, MRIs) available onsite within the hospital and performed by professionals who are specially trained to care for your child.
Kid-Friendly and Family-Centered
A hospital stay can be scary, stressful and disruptive to family life, no matter how short or long. Our services are designed to help lessen some of the stress on you and your child so you can focus on healing.
Caregivers are always welcome – studies show children have a shorter hospital stay if their caregivers stay with them in the hospital. You can stay with your child 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The pediatric floor offers quiet rooms for you to sleep and relax while being close to your child’s room. Ronald McDonald House regularly provides meals and snacks for parents and caregivers.
