A pediatric patient liaison is available from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., seven days a week, to provide you with information about accommodations. Your child's nurse can help you contact the liaison.
Hospitalized children often benefit by having a parent stay the night with them. That's why we provide comfortable reclining chairs and pullout beds in each patient's private room. If you would like to stay overnight in your child's hospital room, please speak with your child's nurse.
Parents also have the option of spending the night in facilities that are located close to our hospital. Please contact your child's nurse for details about room availability and rates.
