Pediatric Care Unit

Only Pediatric Care Unit in Central Oregon

St. Charles Health System pediatric experts are here to provide the best care possible for critically ill children and injured children and their families, in a quiet, safe wing of our Bend hospital. As the only designated Pediatric Inpatient Unit in Central Oregon, our specialists provide care for:

  • Respiratory illnesses
  • Childhood diabetes
  • Gastrointestinal illnesses
  • Heart conditions
  • Neurologic conditions
  • Pre- and post-surgery
  • Urinary tract infections (Or Urinary conditions?)
  • Traumatic injuries

We also provide supplemental care for children being treated by physicians at other major hospitals. This allows your child to remain close to home during treatment and therapy.

Each member of our multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses and support staff is certified to treat children and our shared goal is to treat the whole child: body, mind and spirit. To provide the most consistent high-quality care, specially-trained doctors called pediatric hospitalists work only in the Pediatric Care Unit, collaborating with their patients’ primary care doctors while staying in close communication with parents to include them in every aspect of their child’s care.

A pediatric cardiologist from St. Charles Heart and Lung Center is always available and our support staff includes a diabetes educator, asthma educator, social workers, pharmacists, and dietitians to give families the information and the tools they need in the hospital and at home.

Respect and Safety for Your Family

To respect the physical and emotional needs of children and their families, we offer private examination and treatment rooms. Your family’s security is a top priority, so we keep the Pediatric Care Unit locked at all times and provide space to allow a parent to be present 24 hours a day.
