In 1998 the Children's Hospital at Providence opened a newly remodeled pediatric center, sub-specialty clinic, Newborn Intensive Care Unit and maternity center to provide state-of-the-art medical treatment for Alaska's newborns, children and their families.

Our family-centered care model provides the highest quality health service in a family-friendly environment that reduces stress and involves parents in every step of care.

Family-Centered Care

In an effort to reduce stress to the infant, child and family, the children's hospital adopted the philosophy and principles of family-centered care.

This philosophy supports families in the care-giving role by building on their unique strengths and viewing parents and professionals as equals by:

  • Recognizing and respecting the pivotal role of family in the life of the child
  • Exchanging unbiased and complete information to make decisions that are best for the child
  • Incorporating cultural diversity into policy and practice
  • Encouraging family-to-family support

In addition, the children's hospital provides access to a safe and secure online resource that allows families to keep others updated of the condition of their loved one. Free Internet access in both the pediatric center and the Newborn Intensive Care Unit helps families cope with the challenges and stress of hospitalization.

The Children's Hospital is designated units on the main Providence Alaska Medical Center Campus which is on 36th Ave.

The Children's Hospital at Providence includes the following units: OB Triage, prenatal, labor/delivery, mother baby unit, newborn intensive care unit, pediatrics, pediatric intensive care, subspecialty clinics, pediatric therapies, WIC, and Alaska C.A.R.E.S.

We are what is known as a hospital within a hospital and operate under joint governance with Providence Hospital. The importance of doing this is to have a focused administrative plan for expansion of services. In addition, we have our own Board that supports and mandates a special care delivery called - family-centered care. In addition, as a hospital within a hospital, we may develop programs that are independent and much more intensive than the rest of the hospital due to the complexity of patient and family needs.

A philosophy that recognizes and respects the pivotal role of the family in the lives of children, it strives to support families in the care-giving role by building on their unique strengths and viewing parents and professionals as equals.

  • Incorporate cultural diversity into policy and practice
  • Encourage family to family support
