Third Floor Surgical and Pediatrics at Via Christi Hospital Pittsburg consists of 30 beds (5 semi-private rooms and 20 private rooms), which serve patients from pediatrics to geriatrics. Five rooms are dedicated for pediatric patients and their parents. Our specially trained professionals not only heal, but also strive to put our patients at ease during their visit.
Via Christi's commitment to caring does not stop with our patients, as family is also an important part of the healing process. Our rooms accommodate both the child and an accompanying parent or family member for extra support during this stressful time. Via Christi's pediatric unit is located on the 3rd floor of our medical center.
Post Operative Care
Third Floor Surgical may assist patients in the healing process after a variety of surgical procedures. Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of specialists from all areas of medicine including nursing, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, dietary and social services. Families are also encouraged to participate with our team to assure that all aspects of the patient's recovery are met.
Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Children under six years of age may visit only with prior approval. Special sibling visitation is available in the pediatrics unit.
General visiting hours are 9 a.m.- 9:00 p.m. everyday.
