Medical Services »  Pediatrics



They might be little people, but your kids are more than just pint-sized adults.

Children need a special kind of medical care, plus extra TLC to ease their fears—and those of their parents.

Our pediatricians understand that going to the doctor can be scary for kids, so our staff will take extra time to ease your child's fears and answer any questions you might have about their care.

To help make your child's visit to the hospital and their pediatrician go as smoothly as possible, we have set up a pre-admission process to help speed things along on the morning of your child's procedure. This process is to help decrease you and your child's anxiety and time spent at the hospital.

Please call the Pediatrics Unit at (815) 625-0400, ext. 5522, to take a pre-admission telephone interview that will take 20 to 30 minutes. We know your time is valuable, but our pediatric nurses may be actively caring for their patients when you call. Please do not take offense if they ask to call you back at a later time. This is only done so that we can give you and your family our full attention.
