Pediatric Inpatient Unit

More than 2,000 pediatric inpatient admissions per year

If your child needs to be hospitalized, rest assured that Northwest Community Hospital offers world-class expertise in a safe and comforting environment close to home.

Specially trained Lurie Children's pediatric hospitalists care for your child in conjunction with your pediatrician. These board-certified, hospital-based physicians also work with NCH pediatric nurses who are trained in pediatric advanced life support (PALS) to provide a full range of advanced medical services.

In addition, NCH's unique partnership with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago allows us to offer you a variety of pediatric specialty care consultations and follow-up with specialists such as pediatric cardiologists and pediatric urologists. These specialists are available for consultation at the Busse Center for Specialty Medicine on the NCH campus.

A friendly and caring environment for pediatric care

We want to make your child's stay in the hospital as comfortable and home-like as possible. The Pediatric Inpatient Unit provides a playroom for younger children, stocked with toys, games and movies. Older children have access to DVD players and gaming systems that they can use in their rooms.

Through our animal-assisted therapy program, specially trained dogs and their handlers may visit children in the Pediatric Inpatient Unit for a healthy dose of tail-wagging attention. These visits help comfort children while also reducing their stress.
