Pediatric Services

 Our excellent patient care teams are made up of trained pediatric nurses, technicians, therapists, nutritionists and others. These are dedicated people who truly enjoy working one-on-one with children and answering parents' questions. At Community Howard Regional Health, we understand how stressful your child's hospitalization can be, both for your child and for you. We take the responsibility of caring for your child very seriously, understanding that children have special needs and require special attention.

A unique feature of our Pediatric unit is its treatment room. This is where we give children shots, draw blood for tests, and conduct other procedures a child may find painful or threatening. By not doing these things in the child's room, he quickly learns that his room is a safe place, a place of quiet and comfort, not of further pain. And that simple understanding goes a long way in speeding the child's recovery.

As impressive a concept as it is, the treatment room is just one unique benefit of our Pediatric unit. This facility, located on the second floor of the hospital's west wing, also has ten private patient rooms, a playroom, and a separate consultation room.

Our relationship with North Central Indiana Pediatrics plus a unique partnership with Riley Children's Hospital allows Community Howard to offer comprehensive services to children in north central Indiana.

Visitors other than parents are asked to observe our regular visiting hours of 11:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.
