The unit features specialized care by a team of pediatric hospitalists and experienced pediatric certified nurses who are dedicated to making the hospitalization process as positive and stress-free as possible for patients and their parents. Through a two-way partnership between UM BWMC's pediatric hospitalists and the patient's pediatrician, patients receive treatment based on their personal medical history and have access to the latest technological advancements.
