At San Juan Regional Medical Center, we understand that babies, children, and adolescents are growing and developing individuals who have unique healthcare needs. Our knowledgeable pediatric staff provides specialized and individualized care to patients from birth to 18 years.
When children and adolescents visit the hospital, it can be a frightening and stressful experience for them—as well as their parents and guardians. Our staff believes it’s important for a familiar and loving person to be there to embrace, console, and reassure, and a sleep chair is available for a parent or guardian to stay with their child. We encourage families to bring a comfort item—such as a favorite toy, blanket, or age-appropriate electronic device to help make the hospital environment more familiar.
Parents and guardians know their children better than anyone else. Our highly-trained healthcare professionals in pediatrics value and welcome your observations and suggestions and will ask many questions during the course of your child’s stay.
Visiting hours are around the clock for parents, grandparents, and adults. Younger children are encouraged to visit for short periods of time—during daytime hours—so they can be home for their sleep and rest. School aged children are encouraged to visit between 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., so that they can attend school.
