At PinnacleHealth, we know that a stay in the hospital can be frightening for young children. That’s why our pediatric specialists work hard to make sure your child is comfortable and well cared for in a child-friendly environment.
A boat-shaped nurse's station, a water wall, dressers disguised as portholes, unique sea creature flooring and an overall aquatic theme is sure to please young visitors to the 15-bed Pediatric Unit at PinnacleHealth's Harrisburg Campus. It also includes a playroom for young children.
Some of the common conditions treated on our pediatric unit include:
- Viral infection
- Sickle cell
- Urinary tract infection
