Pediatric Specialty and Inpatient Care

 

Children who require specialty and/or inpatient care have access to the services they need right at Beverly Hospital. The 11-bed pediatric inpatient unit at Beverly Hospital is designed especially for children and their families. Nothing can replace the comfort of having a parent nearby, so there is plenty of room for mom and dad. Physicians, nurses, and other members of the staff go out of their way to accommodate each individual family's needs. In fact, one of the things that makes Beverly Hospital's pediatric care special is the staff members' endless capacity for empathy, flexibility, compassion and warmth. 

Highlights of Beverly Hospital's specialty and inpatient pediatric services include:

  • Boston Children's Hospital specialists in cardiology, gastroenterology, general surgery, neurology and pulmonary medicine care for children who are hospitalized at Beverly Hospital, have office hours on site, and work closely with Beverly Hospital pediatric primary care providers.
  • Through the Pediatric Hospitalist Service, every child admitted to Beverly Hospital has a dedicated hospitalist (a doctor who specializes in caring for patients who are admitted to the hospital) overseeing all aspects of his/her care. The pediatric hospitalist is readily available to staff and to family members to review test results, adjust the care plan, respond to emergencies, answer questions and provide status reports to the child's pediatrician.
  • Beverly Hospital and Boston Children's Hospital orthopedic surgeons collaborate on the diagnosis and treatment of children with injuries or illnesses that affect the bones, joints or spine.
  • Boston Children's Hospital neonatologists care for premature or ill newborns in Beverly Hospital's Special Care Nursery, a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
