Our doctors, nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals are dedicated to providing children and their families with the best pediatric patient care possible. To make a child’s stay easier, we’ve created welcome guides. And we’ve got details on other hospital services.
Our welcome guides include
maps and a directory of information – everything from patient services to
family and guest services to billing to safety and security, privacy and
patient rights and responsibilities.
For hospital inpatients, a
vinyl book is wall-mounted in every patient room with color-coded flip cards in
English and Spanish that families can use as a reference tool. Families also
receive a companion folder with a “quick guide” and other condensed
information, which they can carry with them as they move about the campus.
Outpatients receive a
separate folder with similar information that’s been customized for the needs
of families who come and go.
Our Hospital provides more than 50 medical and
surgical outpatient services to manage children’s special healthcare needs. If
your child needs a referral to one of the medical or surgical clinics, we will arrange
an appointment before your child leaves the hospital
Your child’s surgeon and the operating room team perform
same-day surgery in two locations: the third floor of the West Tower and the seventh floor of the Clinical Care Center. Call 832-824-5840 for information on your child’s surgery
People of all ages can visit inpatient pediatric units at our hospital. To provide a safe environment for our patients, families and staff, we screen visitors for influenza-like symptoms at the impatient unit level each day. Ill visitors will be asked to leave the hospital until fully recovered.
