Children at Oroville Hospital Receive Quality Pediatric Care
When your child is sick enough to be hospitalized, you want to know that he or she receives top-notch care – this takes the skills of many trained hospital staff members. Board certified or board eligible Pediatricians care for hospitalized children in Oroville Hospital’s Medical Surgical Units. Monitoring equipment helps our specially trained staff of nurses to keep careful watch over our young patients. Also, the designated charge nurses on each shift are specially trained in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).
We also recognize that children need extra love while they're in the hospital. We give that extra attention and additionally make every effort to accommodate overnight stays by parents or guardians and keep families informed every step of the way.
In addition to pediatric care while in the hospital, routine pediatric clinical care is provided through Oroville Pediatric Associates and Oroville Pediatric Practice by teams of board certified Physicians and certified Physician Assistants. Dr. Maria "Alice" Alino and Dr. Eric Neal are available to take care of your child’s health needs.
Part of that routine pediatric health care includes vaccinations, an integral part of childhood growth and disease prevention. Certain vaccinations are required by law, and Oroville Hospital’s Pediatricians keep up to date information about California’s requirements.
Patient education for pediatric patients is also an important service provided by Oroville Hospital’s Pediatricians. Childhood obesity is one such opportunity where education can greatly impact the health of our children. In most cases, obesity is preventable — and reversible — with positive lifestyle choices. Parents can play a significant role in the health of their children by working with our Pediatricians and helping to encourage healthy eating and daily exercise. Our Pediatricians have developed programs for overweight children that provide positive reinforcement of these good lifestyle choices.
