Family-Centered Care

Shore Medical Center's pediatric care team is made up of professionals who are dedicated to caring for the unique needs of children. Parents are an essential part of our care team as well. We work with you so you can stay informed of care choices, participate in your child's plan of care and assist your child in feeling safe throughout their hospital stay.

Our nursing staff will keep you informed and include you in the decision making process. They will assess, plan, implement and evaluate all aspects of your child's care. This collaborative approach to care encourages families to follow the designated plan of care and to become educated in the all aspects of their child's condition.

Our goal is to provide high quality care in a safe and caring environment while working with you to identify and meet your family's personal and spiritual needs. We encourage your family to spend as much time as possible at your child's bedside. Our rooms provide comfort and privacy your child's stay in our Pediatric Care Center. Each room offers TV, DVD, private bathrooms and sleeping accommodations for parents.

You can rest assured that your child is in good clinical hands. All children at Shore are seen by board certified emergency physicians and specially trained emergency nurses, who will work in consultation with physicians from Onsite Neonatal Partners.
