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.

Building trust

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.
