The Infant/Toddler Unit provides care for infants aged zero to three with a variety of medical needs. Our team of skilled nurses and respiratory therapists are trained in the special needs of chronically ill infants and toddlers and offer specialized care for who are dependent on a ventilator.
Located in the South Wing of the hospital, the Infant Toddler Unit includes 30 beds, all private so you can spend time alone with your child. Your child's care team includes members of every discipline, including doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, speech therapists and Child Life specialists. We coordinate your child's care with other specialists within the hospital, including general pediatrics and pulmonology.
Visiting Hours are 24 hours a day for family members.
