If a child’s illness requires hospital care, the Children’s Department at The Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital (also known as the Pediatrics Unit) offers a comfortable environment as the child is recovering. The dedicated inpatient team of specialists at the Children’s Department includes pediatric trained pharmacists, UNC pediatric residents and faculty physicians from Cone Health’s Pediatric Teaching Program who practice family-centered care so parents feel completely comfortable with their child’s treatment plan.

If specialty treatment is needed, whether in an inpatient or outpatient setting, Cone Health has a dedicated network of pediatric specialists including pediatric cardiologists, endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, geneticists, allergy/immunologists, surgeons, adolescent medicine specialists, neurologists, neonatologists, developmental/behavioral specialists, ophthalmologists and pediatric critical care specialists.
