Caring for our youngest patients
At Emanuel Medical Center, our dedicated pediatric staff recognizes the special needs of children. Every year, we treat 15,000 children in our emergency room, have 1,200 young inpatients in our pediatric unit, care for 250 babies in our neonatal intensive care unit and deliver 1,500 infants.
To provide the best care available for children in our communities, we've partnered with the world-famous Children's Hospital Central California to provide Pediatric Hospitalists at Emanuel 24 hours a day.
The program means a board-certified pediatrician is always available to attend complicated births, care for infants in the nursery, and treat child-aged patients in the Intensive Care Unit and regular pediatric unit. With these pediatric specialists on-site, fewer children have to be transferred to children's hospitals out of the area.
We know the hospital can be a scary place for kids, and gladly provide hospital tours for little ones before they are admitted. In addition, we schedule play activities for kids while they are with us, and offer education classes for parents.
