St. Luke's pediatric units provide family-centered care to patients from infancy through adolescence. We understand that children have different needs than adults, and require the special attention and skills our staff can provide. Our pediatric units feature advanced technology, as well as the procedures and care practices that have been shown to result in the best recovery for children.
Our designated pediatric units at St. Luke's Children's Hospital, St. Luke's Magic Valley, and St. Luke's Meridian are staffed by specially trained pediatric nurses and designed as environments that help comfort children and ease their pain and fear.
At St. Luke's Children's, your child's health, safety, and security are our top priority. We want you and your child to be as comfortable as possible during your stay. Whatever your child's age—from infant to pre-teen to young adult—our doctors, nurses, and other caregivers are ready to provide the special attention and care you and your child require.
Our Pediatric Advisory Council members serve as advisors and provide a bridge of understanding between care providers and families. They also promote family-centered care and improve the overall experience of families by making recommendations from a family's point of view.
Children’s hospitalists are pediatricians who provide inpatient medical care for hospitalized infants, children, and teens. At St. Luke's Children's, our hospitalists work with a child's primary physician and pediatric subspecialists to coordinate referral, admission, and care in a seamless manner.
Because St. Luke’s Children's Hospital is their primary practice site, hospitalists are more familiar with the hospital than most pediatricians. They are also able to spend more time with a patient, and are in constant contact with the child's regular pediatrician.
The pediatric team at Idaho’s only children’s hospital is dedicated to providing specialized care in a safe, comforting and family-friendly setting.
