patient and visitor information

A hospital can be an overwhelming place. At Advocate Children's Hospital - Park Ridge, we work to create an environment that is warm and more comfortable for our young patients. Our bright, cheery surroundings, family-centered accommodations, and child-focused activities and services help to minimize the stress that can accompany any hospital stay. Separate pediatric and adolescent units allow children and adolescents to relax in age-appropriate recreation areas and enjoy special programs geared toward their own age group.

Pediatric Unit

Our pediatric rooms are private and comforting, with cheerful decors that create a more home-like atmosphere. Each room has private showers and amenities to accommodate parents' overnight stays. Additionally, the pediatric unit's wonderful playroom provides a comforting, non-threatening environment for free play and exploration. During their stay, children can also relax with a movie or enjoy toys and games found in the unit's toy closet.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

The neonatal intensive care unit is a special area for the care of newborn babies who need special care.

Adolescent Unit

A separate adolescent unit has been designed for teenage and young adult patients (ages 10 - 21) and their families. The unit features single and double rooms, and a teen lounge, offering games, activities, music, so teens have a place to relax, socialize and even have some fun.

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)

The pediatric intensive care unit is a special area for the care of seriously ill or injured children, from birth to 18 years of age.

On-Site Pre-Surgical Tour

Provides children ages 3-9, and family an opportunity to visit the operating room and meet with medical staff prior to a scheduled procedure.

Comprehensive Child Life and Teen Life Program

Certified therapists and specially trained volunteers offer a broad spectrum of programs and services to promote healing, and help children and teens adjust to the emotional challenges of hospitalization and treatment.
