From primary to emergency care, UPMC Children's offers expert treatments for children in Erie and the surrounding regions.
A hospital stay can be hard on your child and family. It's vital to have a room where your child can relax and feel safe.
The children's inpatient unit at UPMC Hamot:
We know the value of play for children.
It gives them a way to express themselves. It can also help them work through some of the complex feelings that may arise during a hospital stay.
To that end, the unit features an age-appropriate playroom. Your child and their siblings can play games, read books, and socialize with other kids.
Each inpatient room also includes a TV and Xbox™ gaming system to watch movies or play video games.
Our goal is to help children and families feel a sense of normalcy in the hospital setting.
In the UPMC Children's inpatient unit, hospitalists play a key role on a child's care team.
Our pediatric inpatient unit follows the same visiting hours policy as the main hospital.
