Hospital Care for Children
Remain close to home while getting specialized inpatient hospital care for kids and teens at Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital or Alamance Regional Medical Center.
Enjoy comfortable, brightly-colored private rooms designed especially for children and families. Every room in the children’s units at Moses Cone Hospital and Alamance Regional includes sleeping accommodations for parents, too, so you can stay by your child’s side day and night.
Pediatric Intensive Care
When your child needs the highest level of medical care, rely on the experienced team at Moses Cone Hospital’s four-bed pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). Pediatric critical care specialists (pediatric intensivists) are available around the clock to treat and monitor kids experiencing serious conditions such as:
- Severe asthma
- Diabetic ketoacidosis
- Respiratory distress
- Traumatic injuries
Your Child’s Care Team
As a parent, you’re the most important part of your child’s care team. You’re encouraged to stay overnight with your child, participate in rounds to discuss care, and ask questions whenever you need more information. Other members of your child’s care team at Cone Health may include:
- Board-certified physicians
- Pediatric-trained pharmacists
- Certified pediatric nurses (CPNs)
- Social workers
- Child psychologists
- Recreational therapists
- Pediatricians with advanced training in areas such as endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology and surgery
At Moses Cone Hospital, your child’s team may also include resident physicians—doctors who are training to become pediatric specialists—and faculty physicians from our Pediatric Teaching Program.
Amenities For Kids & Families
You’ll appreciate the healing atmosphere and family-friendly touches of Cone Health’s children’s units. Rest assured that your child’s doctors use special pediatric equipment and that our beds are just the right size for kids’ bodies. You’ll also enjoy comfortable spaces and amenities such as:
Your child will find food he or she likes to eat at Cone Health. Kids can select from meal options such as chicken nuggets, hamburgers and pizza. If your child has food allergies or other dietary restrictions, let us know. Ask about a consultation with our pediatric dietitians.
Use the recently expanded and renovated family lounge at Moses Cone Hospital to watch TV, eat or use your phone without disturbing your child. The lounge includes comfortable seating, tables, vending machines and lockers.
Take a break from tests and treatments to relax, play and have fun. In the recently renovated playroom at Moses Cone Hospital, you’ll find a wide variety of toys for all ages—from video games and air hockey to Playskool toys and picture books. Your child also may enjoy fun, therapeutic activities with our recreational therapist.
Before your child leaves the hospital, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment, connect you with community resources, and help you find a primary care provider if your child doesn’t already have one.
