About Us

The call to serve children is unique, and the medical care required for pediatric patients is extremely specialized. Kids are not just small adults; they require 40% more care than adults and should be treated by pediatric-trained physicians and nurses to ensure the highest quality of care in a warm, loving and kid friendly environment. Our Lady of Lake Children’s Hospital is that place.
