Treating patients up to 18 years old, the Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan pediatric unit is a four-bed specialty unit within the medical-surgical department. With skilled nurses who specialize in pediatrics working alongside our qualified pediatricians, you can trust that your child will receive high-quality, age-specific care.
We take extra care to ensure our patients have everything they need to make their stay as pleasant as possible. Patients have private rooms with a private bathroom, and have access to all kinds of toys and books. They can even watch a movie or play video games.
Patient comfort is one of our main priorities. If your child is going to be admitted to the pediatric unit, please feel free to bring any special toys or blankets from home.
We encourage parents to be involved in their child's care. We know this can be a stressful time, so we try to provide accommodations that will make your stay easier.
Parents are encouraged to spend the night and sleeping accommodations are available. Complimentary coffee is also available at the nurses' station.
