The pediatric unit at Parkway Medical Center serves young people age 18 and under and boasts many special touches:
- Colorful private rooms and hallways creating a cheerful environment
- Two adolescent/teen rooms
- Video library and VCR/DVD’s in every room
- Family refreshment center
- Special menus for kids
- Guest Tray for adults staying with child
Because we know how important it is for children to have a “safe” place to rest and recover, we only perform painful or “scary” procedures, such as injections, in a dedicated pediatric treatment room. This allows the child to always feel safe and secure in his/her room. The nursing staff is trained to make procedures as comfortable and painless as possible. In caring for our pediatric patients, we also allow additional treatment time for nurses to apply medications to numb the skin prior to IV’s, and our nurses are certified in the use of local anesthesia.
Milestone Pediatrics at Parkway
Childhood is the period in life of greatest growth and development of the body. With their many years of training and experience, pediatricians can recognize the difference between normal and abnormal child development and detect potential health problems before they become serious. Your child’s doctor becomes like another member of the family, who, as your child grows, also grows in the knowledge of your child and family.
Milestone Pediatrics is affiliated with Parkway Medical Center. Call 256.301.3435 to set up an appointment that’s convenient for your schedule.
