Medical/Surgical Inpatient Units

For some children and youth, their health condition or course of treatment requires overnight stays at the hospital.
About

3F unit

We provide inpatient care to infants, children and adolescents requiring medical care for general pediatric conditions while focusing on renal conditions. The 24 staff nurses work in unison with allied health professionals to provide care for those children in this family-centred environment. 3F also serves as a clinical teaching unit for medical residents and nursing students.

3M unit

We provide inpatient care to infants, children and adolescents requiring medical care for general pediatric conditions and cardiac sciences. The unit also serves as a clinical teaching unit for medical residents and nursing students.
 
The staff of about 50 nurses works closely with all the allied health professionals to provide care to the children admitted to this family-centred environment.

3R unit

We provide a wide range of services for children from neurosciences and surgery. Children in the inpatient unit have seizures, epilepsy, cranial surgeries, spinal surgeries, head injuries, Guillian-Barre syndrome, Myasthenia Gravis and other rare neurological disorders. We also treat children with brain and spinal cord tumours. 

The Burn Program is also situated in this area. Specialists offer expert burn care and pain management for children in the 3R Burn Unit.

We look after children with complex surgical needs. Patients who come to the 3R unit receive postoperative care as they recover from the different surgical services. Services include general surgery, orthopedics, urology, plastic surgery, gynecology, ophthalmology, ENT (ear, nose and throat), dental and cardiothoracic surgery.
