  • Various types of wounds and infections

Our unit also treats adult patients recovering from allergy, ENT, urology and women's surgical procedures.


Secure Facility

First, you should know that safety and security are a top priority on our unit. We offer 24/7 monitoring, and our staff makes extra rounds throughout the day. Patients under the age of 12 are banded and are not allowed to leave the unit. We take great care to make sure your child is safe. If you are a parent or guardian, we will explain our safety program to you during an orientation session.

Warm Environment

Our unit is designed to make kids feel as cozy and comfortable as possible. Special touches give the floor kid appeal. Meanwhile, our team enjoys interacting with children and giving each patient personalized attention. We play games, celebrate successes, and work to make patients and their families feel at home.

The average pediatric inpatient stay at Owensboro Health is three and a half days. During a child’s care, parents are welcome and encouraged to stay; a comfortable bed and meals are provided.

Great Nurses

Our nurses are Pediatric Care Certified, receive regular training in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and pass an annual skill competency for administering child medications, pediatric emergency and pediatric equipment.

Kosair Relationship

Owensboro Health has a close relationship with Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, recently recognized as one of America's "Best Children's Hospitals" by U.S. News & World Report. So while you can count on Owensboro Health for quality care, you can also trust us to make the right call should your child need to be transferred.
