Parents are encouraged to take an active role and participate in all decisions pertaining to the care of their chidlren.

In order to insure seamless care between the hospital and ambulatory settings, we maintain constant communication between our staff and the community providers. All patients on the Pediatric floor, Pediatric ICU and Ambulatory Services are cared for by our Pediatric physician residents under the close supervision of our Pediatric faculty hospitalists, intensivists and specialists who facilitate the care of all children and remain available to assist the community Pediatricians in any aspect of inpatient care.
