The pediatric department at St. John is warm and cheerful - designed to put children and families at ease. Our child life specialist provides activities to boost kids’ spirits as well as educational events, such as pre-surgery hospital tours to explain things and ease anxiety. Especially ill or injured children receive around-the-clock monitoring and care in our newly renovated pediatric intensive care unit. Compassionate care No one wants to hear their child may need surgical care, but our team will help patients and their families understand why it is necessary, what it involves, and what to expect during your time at St. John. The health and well-being of our patients is our priority. We care for the whole person – body, mind, and spirit.
