Pediatric Units

Every specialist in the Pediatric Unit at Goryeb Children’s Hospital, Hersh Children's Center, the Children's Center at Chilton Medical Center and throughout Atlantic Health System provides superior care in a warm, compassionate environment that's centered on patients and families. 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.

Our inpatient units at Morristown Medical Center, the Vanech Family Pediatric Inpatient Unit and Ryan Pediatric Inpatient South Unit and the Foley Pediatric Intensive Care Unit have a total of 49 private rooms, which support pediatric patients and their families during their stay. 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.

At Overlook Medical Center, the Meri and Sol Barer Inpatient Pediatric Unit inside the Hersh Children's Center has nine all-private, comfortable inpatient rooms with comfortable sleeping accommodations for a parent or guardian.

We also provide cribs for infants and toddlers at both locations. 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 separate 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.
