We understand that for kids, coming to the hospital can be a scary experience. For parents, it is the last place you want your child to have to be. That's why TMC for Children pediatric unit was created with families in mind. From certified pediatric nurses and physicians to child life specialists who understand how to take a bit of the fear out of your child's hospital experience, TMC for Children is designed for, well, children. And, the care plan is designed to meet your child's needs whether they are days old or 18 years old.

The unit, which has 44 private rooms, offers kids a place to read, watch television, or play video games in or outside of their room. And children who are well enough can play outside in a secure outdoor play space.

Our smallest pediatric patients -- our newborns -- stay with their mothers in the Mother/Baby unit or, if extra care is needed, in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit.

We integrate patient- and family-centered care into all aspects of the hospital experience.
