Pediatrics in salinas

A Cheerful Atmosphere Where Children Can Heal

Our Pediatric Department has the technology, expertise, and the full spectrum of care to treat young patients, from infancy through adolescence. In addition to our experienced pediatric staff and advanced medical treatment, children will enjoy find a playful but healing environment at Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System. We have made every effort to see our environment through the eyes of little ones.

Leading-edge medical treatment is one important tool in our arsenal. Additionally, our pediatric staff is highly skilled and includes registered nurses with specialized training in Pediatric Advanced Life Support and nurses who are certified in pediatric nursing care.

Special Rooms for Kids

Our cheerful environment fosters a family-centered approach to comfort and healing. The 18 rooms in our Pediatric Unit are specially designed for children and can also accommodate their parents. Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital also has a special procedure room for children. It's a pastel-colored room with inviting animal images on the wall. There's a purple hippo-shaped table that’s perfect for little ones to climb on.

Our Murals

You can’t help but smile when you see the details that have gone into making our pediatrics department friendly for children. Our hand-painted, floor-to-ceiling murals line the entire radius of the pediatrics department to encourage and lift spirits. It looks like you have stepped onto an outside street with lights that go on every evening at dusk when you walk into the pediatrics department at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital.

Our Playroom

A hospital does not have to be a scary place. Movies, hand painted chairs, dollhouse, and toys are not common items you would find in a hospital, but they are the standard for our indoor playroom. Children come first at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital, which is why they have a playroom dedicated just to them! They can hang out with their parents, friends or sit back in the big chair and relax.

Our Pediatrics Unit fosters a cheerful, comfortable environment conducive to healing, with 18 beds —including a special pediatrics procedure room and dedicated playroom. You will see the loving, cooperative efforts of a community coming together to sponsor the creation of a space where childhood health and wellness comes first.
