At Rutland Regional Medical Center our youngest patients are treated with the utmost care in a warm, friendly environment that is close to home and, most importantly, close to you.
Kids feel comfortable here. And parents feel comfortable knowing their children are getting the very best care. The board-certified physicians and nurses who staff our inpatient Pediatric unit are experienced in treating children with a wide range of common childhood illnesses and injuries, including:
- Orthopaedic Problems like Broken Bones
- Flu, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), Pneumonia, Asthma and Other Respiratory Conditions
- Gastrointestinal Problems
- Mild to Moderate Concussions and Similar Non-Life-Threatening Head Injuries
Treatments are administered in a special room, separate from the child's hospital room. This helps to ensure your child feels safe and secure in his or her room.
Cribs and bassinets are available for infants, and all rooms are decorated with bright, colorful wallpaper, and furnished with sleeper chairs. We welcome and encourage parents to remain with their child throughout their stay. Meals are also provided, free of charge, for one parent.
For children requiring intensive or specialized care, Rutland Regional makes all the needed arrangements for referral or transfer to another facility.
Members of our caring pediatric team include:
- Pediatricians. Board-certified physicians who specialize in caring for infants, children and adolescents.
