Hospitals can be a little scary for everyone. Especially kids. We know they'd rather be climbing trees or visiting friends instead of Chilton Medical Center, so we try to make their experiences as painless as possible - whether they're sick, hurt or scheduled for surgery.
Chilton offers a pediatric care centered around the needs of our youngest patients - and their families, too.
At Chilton Medical Center, you can trust that your child is always in expert hands. Our facility is complemented by a highly skilled medical staff, including board certified pediatricians who are in the hospital 24 hours a day and pediatric subspecialists who are available whenever they're needed. Additionally, all of our nurses are certified in pediatric advanced life support and trained to care for little and big kids alike, from infants and toddlers to adolescents, teenagers and young adults.
Importantly, our staff members are as compassionate as they are experienced - they are there to not only administer medical care, but also to hold hands, dry tears and offer plenty of hugs.
Specialized Treatment Room
Some children need a special procedure performed during their stay. Many tests such as bloodwork and exams can be done in our Pediatric Treatment Room, allowing kids to remain in familiar surroundings rather than traveling throughout the hospital, while also keeping their hospital rooms as "safe zones" dedicated to sleeping and resting instead of poking or prodding. We do our best to keep everything comfortable and stress-free, even providing tots with door-to-door transportation in our very own "hotrod," the cherry apple red MedWagon.
