From your toddler’s first scrape to your teenager’s first injury, UPMC Pinnacle Hanover will be by your side to care for your child and answer any of your concerns. We treat children as if they are our own, allowing them to feel comfortable and safe, and encouraging parents to take an active role in their child's experience. Our medical professionals focus on providing child-friendly care. Our professionals explain procedures with words that children and parents can understand, and they also provide a playroom, easing the stress and anxiety of hospitalization.

For a child, the hospital can be a very scary place. The air feels cold, the walls are white, the rooms seem dark, and sometimes strangers have to do things that may be uncomfortable. On UPMC Pinnacle Hanover's Pediatric Unit, things are a lot different.

  • All the rooms in the Pediatric Unit are private to allow the patient and their family privacy. The rooms' windows illuminate your child's healing space and show off the brightly decorated walls.
  • Medical equipment that your child may view as threatening is hidden out of sight so that their room can remain a "safe" place to relax and heal.
  • A playroom is available for your child. Play can be a wonderful way to pass time and can help children express their feelings about being in the hospital.

For all families, the hospitalization of a child can be an unsettling experience. At UPMC Pinnacle Hanover, we work hard to alleviate your anxiety and make your child's stay as comfortable as possible. In addition to our calming physical space and advanced technology, you'll find a caring and highly skilled physicians and nursing staff.
