Helping Our Youngest Patients
At "The Kids Cove"
We recognize a hospital stay can be scary – especially for children. That's why we offer a dedicated pediatric unit, dubbed "The Kids Cove," exclusively for children from newborn to 18 years of age. The Kids Cove includes 11 private rooms, a playroom, and a centralized nurse's station providing excellent visibility for patient monitoring and greater peace-of-mind for parents.
Our special "Ouch Room," in which all treatments are provided, helps children associate their hospital room with rest and relaxation, rather than with medical procedures.
The Kids Cove's bright and colorful setting features an ocean theme with tropical fish décor, floor tile patterns resembling ocean waves, and even fish and star ceiling tiles.
General visiting hours are 1 – 8 p.m. Parents, siblings (if appropriate) and grandparents are welcome at any time. We try to be as flexible as possible because we understand the extra-importance of family when someone is ill.
Quiet Time is 1 – 2:30 p.m each day. This time is set aside for your child to nap or rest. We will try to limit any testing or interruptions during this time.
Overnight stays by Family:A sleep chair will be provided if you wish to stay with your child. Only ONE parent per child may stay in the room at night. Accommodations will be made for the other parent if both of you wish to stay.
