Children have special medical needs that are different from those of adults.
When your child isn’t feeling well, you need to know that he or
she is being well taken care of by highly trained pediatric clinicians.
That’s why Sunrise Children’s Hospital is on a mission to
care for the well-being of children in our community. In fact, we are
the only dedicated
children’s hospital in the Las Vegas area. Our focus on children’s health allows us
to provide the specialized care and support services they need.
When you take your child to a children’s hospital, you can rest
assured that every doctor who sees your child has received specialized
pediatric training. Children’s hospitals bring together highly trained
pediatricians, pediatric emergency medicine doctors, pediatric nurses,
and other professionals who have an in-depth understanding of the unique
health issues that affect young patients.
Pediatric Medical Equipment
You might be surprised to learn that not every healthcare facility is
fully equipped with child-sized medical equipment. A children’s
hospital has the right equipment for children of all ages, ranging from
pediatric hospital beds to special pressure cuffs.
It’s difficult enough to watch a child cope with pain and other
symptoms. Families shouldn’t have the added burden of a stressful
hospital visit. When you take your child to a specialized pediatric care
location, he or she will be soothed by the colorful, child-friendly décor
and positive ambience.
Children often have difficulty understanding what’s happening during
a diagnostic test or treatment. Their siblings may also express negative
emotions about the situation. At a children’s hospital, families
can work with Child Life Specialists. These professionals are specially
trained in putting young patients at ease and using age-appropriate language
to explain hospital procedures. Child Life Specialists can also provide
support for the young patient’s siblings.
Sunrise Children’s Hospital features the largest dedicated children’s
emergency care department in Las Vegas. Our pediatric specialists work
closely with parents to provide family-centered care. If you would like
more information about the unique care our children’s hospital provides,
you can call a registered nurse at (702) 233-5437.
