Saint Vincent Hospital’s Department of Pediatrics provides a full spectrum of care for your children from birth to age 16. Our team of specialists includes pediatricians, neonatologists, nurses and staff trained to provide expert pediatric care.
Comprehensive Pediatric Care
We have a four-bed inpatient unit, a nursery with 33 bassinets and a Level II special care nursery with 8 bassinets. We encourage families to stay with their children, and great attention is given to the physical, mental and emotional support of the hospitalized child.
The Newborn Service provides 24 hour in-house pediatric coverage of the nursery and delivery room. The nursery cares for more than 2,000 babies per year, admitted by more than 70 community pediatricians and family practitioners.
The department also actively supports the pediatric services of the Emergency Department, providing consultation and backup for the emergency medicine and pediatric physicians.
