Having a child in the hospital can be an anxious and overwhelming experience for both the patient and family. At L+M Hospital, our Pediatric Services team strives to give our pediatric patients and families the safest, friendliest, most compassionate, and highly competent care in the region.
Patient and Family-Centered Care
Patient and family-centered care is a delivery of care that recognizes the significance of the families in their children’s lives. The belief that parents are partners in caring for their child is central to how we take care of our youngest patients. We continually strive to be responsive to the needs of our pediatric patients and families and make the hospital experience more satisfying for all.
Child Life Services
Whether this is your child’s first visit to the hospital or one of many; hospitalization can be scary for both children and families. Our Child Life Coordinator is a child development and family studies trained professional with expertise in helping children and families cope with the hospital experience.
Through the use of play, preparation for procedures, and emotional support, the goal of Child Life services is to decrease the stress of the hospital environment and promote a positive hospital stay.
At the Hospital, L+M pediatric care is designed to provide a unique level of care for all patients younger than 18 years of age. Together with families, community pediatricians and specialists, our pediatric doctors and specially-trained pediatric nurses ensure that each child receives compassionate and expert care close to home.
