Located on the 7th Floor, our 24 large, private patient rooms have sleeping space for two parents. Each room is designed with the child in mind and was designed with input from the Le Bonheur’s Family Partners Council.
Ten rooms are equipped for epilepsy monitoring and each room has a refrigerator to store food and drinks.
An inpatient rehab room is located on the floor so that your child can stay close to their room for rehabilitation services.
More than 35 specially-trained registered nurses staff the unit and take care of a full range of patients. A family room is available for parents to gather and relax.
Comforts like a laundry room, kitchen and wireless internet are available.
Child Life services focus on the needs of children with neurological conditions.
Parent mentors understand your experience and are willing to share their experiences and offer support.
