The Pediatric Center
Our pediatric center serves sick children from birth to their teens. We focus on family-centered care, because we recognize that when a child becomes ill and hospitalized, it affects the entire family. Our staff is part of an interdisciplinary team that works with families to deal with juvenile diabetes, asthma, sickle cell anemia, cystic fibrosis and other diagnoses.
We also offer a free meal service for parents who do not wish to leave their child. We understand that children may have fears about being in the hospital. Our pediatric nursing staff is experienced and sensitive to meeting your child's needs.
Centra and our community are working together to reduce the number of infant deaths through education of 11 areas. The goal is to ensure that every baby born has the best chance possible to reach their first birthday happy and healthy.
