Highly Specialized, Family-Centered Care

As children grow and develop, their health care needs constantly change. Children require a specialized approach to health care that involves their families every step of the way. UMC Children’s Hospital believes in providing the highest level of care within a caring and comforting environment. With the diverse needs of children, young patients may require additional time with health care providers, more extensive monitoring, and specialized medications.
At UMC Children’s Hospital, families are treated as partners in their child’s health care journey. Parents and families are the real experts at caring for their children, and are encouraged to stay and participate in their child’s recovery.
