A recent article in LA Parent magazine entitled “Hospital Homework,” points out that Southern California is home to some of the world’s best medical facilities and encourages parents to “learn the landscape now, so you’re ready if you need them.”
Stephen Treiman, M.D, director of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Huntington Memorial Hospital, agrees. As a leading physician in pediatric care, Dr. Treiman was interviewed for the article, and he suggests that parents take time to understand what their local hospitals offer.Some important criteria to look for include:
- A designated pediatric unit or floor,
- A pediatric intensive care unit,
- A pediatric anesthesiologist on staff.
Huntington Hospital offers all of the above, in a comforting and caring atmosphere. Serving patients from day-old infants 18 years of age, our pediatric care services are age-appropriate and sensitive to the special needs of the young.
Huntington Hospital's highly specialized pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) is the only facility of its kind in the San Gabriel Valley. Learn more.
