No one wants to see their child ill or in pain. That's why our goal on the Pediatrics Unit at Columbus Regional Health is to make each child's visit as comfortable as possible. Our 11-bed dedicated Pediatrics Unit is designed to provide high-quality, efficient care to pediatric patients from infants all the way through age 17.
It is important for hospitalizations for children to incorporate some fun and have a feeling of home, so on the Pediatrics Unit at Columbus Regional Health, we provide many comforts of home including toys and a large kid-friendly DVD library and video games. Also, we try to make our Pediatric patients feel safe and special at all times and utilize a child-friendly treatment room for any necessary procedures.
The Pediatrics Unit has a specially-trained nursing staff that provides care to support the physical, mental, psychosocial, developmental and spiritual needs of the pediatric patient and family. Also, many of our local pediatricians and family practice physicians in Columbus provide care to patients admitted to the Pediatrics Unit, meaning that you can continue to be taken care of by your child’s primary care physician in many instances.
