Confluence Health Pediatric Department specializes in the health and treatment of children from birth through adolescence. Along with diagnosing illnesses and prescribing medications, pediatricians monitor children’s physical, mental and social development, advise adolescents on a range of emotional and social issues and counsel families.
Our pediatric nurses are trained in the fields of intensive care, orthopedics, obstetrics, medical-surgical and ambulatory care. They regularly attend continuing education classes to build upon their pediatric nursing skills.
At Confluence Health we encourage parents to be actively involved in their child’s care, ask questions if need be. Our staff explains every phase of the treatment and helps the parents be a partner in the healing process. Children will feel more comfortable having their parents involved, and parents will feel more confident to care for their child once they return home.
