At Rutland Regional Medical Center, we understand that our youngest patients need specialized care in a warm and friendly environment. That’s why our board-certified physicians and nurses strive to make you and your child comfortable while providing the region’s best pediatric care, close to home.
Our inpatient pediatric staff is specially trained to treat children—from infants to teens—who are suffering from a range of common childhood illnesses and injuries, including:
- Orthopaedic problems, such as broken bones
- Respiratory conditions, such as flu, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), pneumonia and asthma
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Mild to moderate concussions and other non-life-threatening head injuries
If your child requires specialized or intensive care, our staff will make all the necessary arrangements for a seamless referral or transfer to another medical facility.
Specialized Pediatric Facilities
Our inpatient pediatric unit is specially designed to make you and your child feel welcome. Rooms are decorated with bright, colorful wallpaper and furnished with sleeper chairs, so you can remain with your child during his or her hospital stay. Cribs and bassinets are available for infants, and meals are provided for one parent, free of charge.
We understand that a hospital stay can be scary for children. To help children feel safe and secure in their hospital room, we administer all treatments in a separate procedure room.
