The Children’s Hospital on the main campus is a 125-bed hospital within a hospital including a PICU and NICU that are staffed 24-hours a day with senior staff. The Children’s Hospital staff includes the entire range of talented nationally recognized pediatric specialists and sub-specialists to provide tertiary and quaternary care to our patients as well as nationally ranked and recognized adult colleagues in all related disciplines.
