A sick child can cause fear and anxiety for parents. At HCA Houston Healthcare Kingwood, our pediatric department offers a comfortable and safe environment to ensure the best possible experience for young patients and their parents.
Our pediatric unit is tailored to meet the needs of children, from newborns to 18-year-olds. If your child is sick, our experienced professionals and specially designed department provide a range of medical services, including:
- Cardiology (heart)
- Endocrinology (glands and hormones)
- Neurology (brain, spine and nerves)
- Pulmonology (respiratory / lungs)
- Neonatology (newborn infants, especially ill or premature babies)
- Ophthalmology (eyes)
Our pediatric hospitalists work directly with your private pediatrician to guarantee your child receives thorough medical attention, coordinating care and consulting on the best treatment options for your child. Our staff also has the ability to consult with a pediatric oncologist if needed.
Pediatric emergency room
Kingwood’s pediatric ER is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is the area’s only full-service, dedicated pediatric emergency room. Our facility provides a comfortable, child-friendly environment. The pediatric ER is located on the south end of the campus, behind the South Tower and Women & Children's Services at the south entrance.
Our pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) provides comprehensive, quality care for critical but non-emergent illnesses and conditions. All physicians and nurses in the PICU are specially trained in pediatrics, so they are prepared to approach a plan of care with our young patients in mind.
