About the Orange Regional’s Pediatric Center
Orange Regional’s three-phase pediatric plan includes:
Thanks to the support of our community partners, Hospital employees and medical staff, the first phase of our campaign is complete. Phase 1 included the construction of a dedicated Children’s Emergency Department within Orange Regional’s current Emergency Room, featuring 10 secure, child-friendly treatment areas. Pediatric sub-specialty services were also added including anesthesia, urology, neurology, endocrinology, surgery, psychiatry and telemetry. Phase 1 of the campaign also added specialized staff including Pediatric Hospitalists, Pediatric Unit staff and a Child Life Specialist.
Currently working in phase 2, Orange Regional continues to add Pediatric sub-specialty inpatient and outpatient services and staff is receiving specialized sensitivity training to help create a child-friendly environment. The Hospital is also being equipped and furnished to address the needs and comforts of children from birth to 18 years.
This phase includes enhancements of the existing Pediatric Inpatient Unit, including designated Pediatric Intensive Care (PIC) Rooms. Orange Regional also plans to add community outreach and education programs on children’s health, wellness and safety.
