John Muir Health Pediatric Complex Care

Pediatric Complex Care Unit

We know that a child’s hospital stay can be stressful. You’re full of questions and concerns and want to make sure your child is being taken care of. When your child stays with us, we listen to your questions and we explain what’s going on, because we know you’re a key part of our healing team.

Get to know your child’s care team

Your child will be cared for by a team of doctors, nurses and support staff who are passionate about working with children and their families. They partner hand-in-hand with you to make sure you are fully participating in your child’s care. So you can feel confident in that care every step of the way.

Your child’s care team might include:

  • Pediatricians, including your child’s primary doctor or our in-house pediatricians
  • Specialists, if needed
  • Registered nurses specially trained to take care of children
  • Respiratory, occupational, and physical therapists, to help your child with movement and physical skills during treatment
