Patient Experience (GI Unit)
On average, children admitted to a hospital will spend 5 days in the hospital ward. That’s a long time for a young child to be away from the comforts of home. We believe that kids heal faster and stronger if they are happy and comfortable during these long periods of time in the hospital. Through specially designed kid-friendly areas, we provide parties, toys, gifts, entertainment and celebrity visits to ensure these little heroes are comfortable while they battle their illnesses. We also support their families through break rooms, parent facilities and kitchens, and an expansive library with staff to promote educational and leisure reading. Using innovative trials of new pain management techniques and improved scanning technologies, we are reducing time away from home.
