Pediatric Inpatient Unit

A child’s illness or injury is difficult for everyone involved. Our Pediatric Unit offers comprehensive care that makes your child’s hospital stay more relaxed and helps put your fears at rest.

Hospital Care Coordinated With Your Physician

Your child's primary care physician (PCP) will coordinate your child’s care during the hospital stay.

Your PCP may admit and manage their patients, or they may choose to have their inpatients managed by private practice pediatricians or Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital pediatric hospitalist service.

The pediatric hospitalist will provide in-house management upon request by private physicians and will also be available in-house for emergencies and consultations 24/7 for pediatric patients.

  • Asthma
