Every specialist in the Pediatric Unit at Goryeb Children’s Center at Overlook Medical Center provides superior care in a warm, compassionate, patient- and family-centered care environment. We know that the hospitalization of a child is one of the most difficult things a family ever experiences, and we are dedicated to supporting you during this stressful time.
Your child may have a roommate, unless your physician specifies otherwise for medical reasons. When we assign a roommate, we take your child’s age, sex and diagnosis into consideration. Children who need to be isolated because of their illnesses have first priority for a single room.
We also provide cribs for infants and toddlers. Even if your toddler is accustomed to a large bed at home, we may put your child in a crib for safety.
The bathroom in the patient room is for the patient's use only. We provide a lavatory, shower, washer and dryer for parents -- please ask a staff member for assistance. A visitor’s lounge with vending machines is located at the end of the hallway, and a TV and VCR/DVD player are available in every room. Age-appropriate toys, video game systems and DVD/videos are available in the unit playroom.
