Pediatrics in salinas

A Cheerful Atmosphere Where Children Can Heal

Our Pediatrics Department has the technology, expertise and the full spectrum of care to treat young patients, from infancy through adolescence. Leading-edge medical treatment is one important tool. Additionally, our pediatrics staff is highly skilled and includes registered nurses with specialized training in Pediatric Advanced Life Support and nurses who are certified in pediatric nursing care.

In addition to our experienced pediatric staff and advanced medical treatment, children will find a playful but healing environment at Salinas Valley Health. We have made every effort to see our setting through the eyes of little ones. Our department is a result of the loving, cooperative efforts of a community coming together to sponsor the creation of a space where childhood health and wellness comes first.

Special Rooms for Kids

Our cheerful environment fosters a family-centered approach to comfort and healing. The 18 rooms in our Pediatric Unit are specially designed for children and can also accommodate their parents. Salinas Valley Health Medical Center also has a special procedure room for children with pastel colors and inviting animal images on the wall. The room’s purple hippo-shaped table is perfect for little ones to climb on.

Our Murals

You can’t help but smile when you see the details that have gone into making the Salinas Valley Health Medical Center's Pediatrics Department friendly for children. Our hand-painted, floor-to-ceiling murals line the entire radius of the Pediatrics Department to encourage and lift spirits. When you walk into the department, it looks like you have stepped onto an outside street, with lights that go on every evening at dusk.

Our Playroom

A medical center does not have to be a scary place. Movies, hand-painted chairs, a dollhouse and toys are not common items you would find in a medical center, but they are the standard for our indoor playroom. Children come first at Salinas Valley Health Medical Center, which is why they have a playroom dedicated just to them! They can hang out with their parents or friends, or sit back in the big chair and relax.
