Pediatrics

At Knapp Medical Center, we realize that a child’s hospital stay is stressful for both the parent and child. That’s why our skilled and caring professionals work hard to make your child’s stay as comfortable as possible. We will work with your physician to provide exceptional, compassionate care.

Kid-Friendly Environment

At Knapp Medical Center, infants, children and teenagers receive comprehensive care in a warm, kid-friendly environment. The recently refurbished Pediatric Unit at Knapp features an “Under the Sea” theme to help create a fun, healing environment for your child and speed the healing process.

Visitation

We encourage one adult family member (the care-giver) to remain with their child throughout their stay at Knapp Medical Center. This will help your child cope with hospitalization better. The care-giver must be 18 years of age or older and should stay in the room at meal times to help feed the child. This is important because most children will not eat when fed by the nurse.

  • The care-giver will use a regular visitor pass during the day and may obtain an overnight pass from the nurses’ station.
  • A new overnight pass will be issued for each day of the week.
  • All other visitors must follow the general visiting hours and obtain a visitor pass from the Information Desk.
  • Only the care-giver may spend the night with the child.
  • Sibling Visitation may be granted from 7 – 8:30 p.m. (Please check with charge nurse)
