A pediatrician examines a young girl in a clinic.


Every parent or guardian knows the pain of caring for a sick child. When your child falls ill, you want care that is compassionate, family friendly and child centered: you want Providence.

Our pediatric specialists don’t just treat your child’s illness. We treat the whole person in a caring, supportive environment that puts the entire family at ease. Our pediatric units are specially designed with age appropriate medical equipment and staffed with caring nurses and medical personnel trained to meet the specialized needs of developing children and adolescents. With a child-centered approach, our pediatric teams treat your children in a holistic manner, both medically and psychologically.

We respect the fact that you are your child's strongest advocate, so we believe in working in partnership with you to keep you as informed and involved in your child’s care as possible. Being on the leading edge of pediatric and developmental research means we help parents take an active role in their children’s healing and well-being.

In order to comfort our young patients and help them see the foreign hospital environment as something familiar and less intimidating, we involve parents in every activity, from feeding and diaper changes, to playtime and cuddling.

The last thing anyone wants is for their child to be hospitalized. For those unfortunate cases, we’re here to help. This is why many of our hospitals are equipped with technology designed to handle pediatric surgery, orthopedics, urology and other pediatric subspecialties, as well as inpatient and outpatient pediatric surgeries.

Along with comprehensive neonatal intensive care units and an extensive network of pediatricians, many of our hospitals provide pediatric care that is grounded in evidence based medicine.

Many Providence hospitals offer a wide range of specialized health care services for children. From routine check-ups to pediatric critical care, our goal is to offer each parent and child the care essential to healthy living. Our pediatric services include:

  • CCS-certified pediatric units
  • Pediatric intensive care
