HealthAlliance Hospital offers a full range of comprehensive pediatric
services and referrals for children from newborns to young adults. The staff of
experts - pediatricians, family practice physicians and pediatric nurses -
offers the most current technologies and treatments for children. They are
dedicated to making every child's hospitalization safe and comfortable, and they
keep families fully involved in their child's care.
As a member hospital of UMass Memorial Health Care, our pediatricians refer
to the broad range of pediatric specialists at UMass Memorial Children's Medical Center in Worcester
when such care is needed. Infants and children who require intensive care are
referred to the Pediatric Intensive Care
Unit at UMass Memorial .
The range of services available on the Leominster Campus allows area patients
to remain close to home even when they need inpatient care.
Inpatient Care: The Pediatric/Young Adult Unit is licensed
for 12 inpatient beds and is led by a team of hospital medicine specialists
trained in pediatrics. A parent is invited to sleep overnight on the sleeping
recliner provided in each room to make the child feel more comfortable during
his/her hospital stay. Morning coffee is available for parents, and boarding
mothers breastfeeding their child (who is a patient) also receive
Pediatric Hospital Medicine: The Pediatric
Hospital Medicine Program offers the comfort of knowing that highly qualified,
board certified pediatric clinicians provide 24-hour, in-house coverage for
pediatric patients requiring hospitalization. The pediatric hospitalists also
attend deliveries and provide newborn care.
Pediatric Same-Day Surgery/Recovery: A child undergoing same
day surgery is admitted to the Pediatric/Young Adult Unit where trained
pediatric nurses look after him/her. The nurses prepare the child for surgery
and accompany him/her to the operating room. When the surgery is completed and
the patient awakes in the first phase of recovery, he/she is brought back to the
unit to complete recovery. He/she stays on the pediatric unit until discharged.
Families are encouraged to remain on the pediatric unit with their child.
Patient Information: Family members may call their child's
nurse at any time about his/her condition. To ensure safety and confidentiality,
prearranged proof of identify is required before the nurse provides any
information. For information, call 978-466-4160.
