Kids Come First at Chippenham Hospital
When it comes to your child, you expect the best medicine from the top experts. At Chippenham Hospital, we care for thousands of children each year through our network of family doctors, pediatricians, and special services, such as lab and imaging. We are there as you prepare to welcome your new addition with prenatal education classes, from their very first breath in our comfortable Labor & Delivery suites, to Neonatal & Pediatric Intensive Care Units for babies to children needing a higher-level of monitoring and care.
At Chippenham Hospital, we treat patients with a variety of acute and chronic conditions and disabilities, ranging from diabetes, asthma, spinal corrections, concussion and fractures to respiratory distress, croup, pneumonia, and so much more.
If your child is experiencing an emergency, dial 911 immediately.For children and adolescents struggling with depression, addiction or mental health issues, we offer comprehensive inpatient care at Tucker Pavilion.
Your child's safety is of utmost importance to us. Our pediatric units are secured - doors are locked and visitors must call from a phone outside of our units for access. Video cameras monitor all areas so nurses can see hallways and doors.
Our central vital signs monitoring system allows our nurses to keep a constant watchful eye on your child - either from their bedside or from the nurses' station. In addition, the Chippenham Hospital Pediatric Rapid Response Team responds to patients requiring immediate attention related to changes in cardiac, respiratory, or neurological status.
