The Paediatric Unit provides primary care for infants, children and adolescents up to the age of 19. Patients with major complications are transferred to a tertiary care centre such as Hamilton Health Sciences Centre.
Our Paediatric Unit delivers family-centred care so family participation is very important. Paediatric Day Surgery patients as well as Medical Outpatients are cared for in our 6 West unit.
Community liaison involves other agencies such as Community Mental Health Clinic, Public Health, Homewood Health Centre, Community Care Access Centre, University of Guelph, local schools, and the Home Accident and Injury Committee (screens for child welfare cases).
