Being in the hospital can be scary for adults and kids alike. To help our little patients feel more comfortable, we've equipped our pediatrics unit with colorful, child-friendly decor, and games and toys for kids to use when they're feeling better. Parents can rest assured knowing their children are being cared for by highly qualified and compassionate pediatricians and staff.
Our 14-bed pediatric unit includes six Pediatric Intensive Care Rooms and offers a child-friendly environment with caring, experienced health care professionals who are specially certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). Our pediatric nurses work as a team with the board certified physicians, Child Life Specialists, and the parents to provide education and support, ensuring our smallest patients receive special care.
We encourage a parent to stay in the child's room during the night. For the safety of our young patients, we limit visitors to age 16 and older.
St. Rose Dominican is the only Children's Miracle Network hospital in the region. The St. Rose Dominican collaboration with Children's Miracle Network began in January 2005. Since that time, the partnership has helped provide new pediatric equipment for the hospital, charity care for patients, and health education for children. 100 percent of every dollar raised in southern Nevada goes directly to the St. Rose Dominican NICU and pediatric centers.
