The Children’s Center features experienced pediatric caregivers, including:

  • Board certified pediatricians

  • General dietitians; rehabilitation therapists; and X-ray, surgery and laboratory technicians


The Children’s Center offers eight beds for patients with access to three additional beds if more children require care at Saint Francis Medical Center. Each patient room is private to accommodate overnight stays for parents and features homelike décor that is appealing to children of all ages.

Safety and Security

Separate treatment and exam rooms allow physicians and nurses to perform procedures outside of the child’s room, helping kids always feel safe and secure in their own rooms. The new facility also has central cardiac monitoring, a security system and a three-room clinic for outpatient visits.

Our Playroom and Theater

Pediatric patients can also enjoy a playroom loaded with age-appropriate games and toys as well as a state-of-the-art theater room with a fiber-optic starry night ceiling and top-of-the-line audio and video equipment donated by Q Audio & Video.
