Pediatric Care

Top pediatric specialists in Richmond

At Chippenham Hospital in Richmond, our pediatricians and other pediatric specialists care for thousands of children each year. We are there for your child, from their very first breath in our comfortable labor and delivery suites to pediatric intensive care units where children needing a higher-level of monitoring and care are treated.

Our pediatric specialists 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.

The hospital staff and pediatric ER staff put the safety and comfort of your child above everything else. We understand children are different and give them bedside manner they deserve.

Pediatric ER in Richmond

Signs your child should go to the ER

In addition to our pediatric services, Chippenham Hospital also has a pediatric ER specifically designed for children of all ages. Unlike normal emergency rooms, our pediatric ER is designed to care for children, from the brightly decorated waiting area to the diagnostic equipment our pediatric specialists use to find out how best to treat your child. You can only find this kind of bedside manner and advanced technology at a pediatric ER.

Pediatric mental health

For children and adolescents struggling with depression, addiction or mental health issues, we offer comprehensive inpatient care at Tucker Pavilion.

Hospital safety

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.
