Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo Charity Profile
It's often said at Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo that "children are not just small adults." Medical problems of children treated by the pediatric specialists at Women & Children's are often quite different from those commonly seen by practitioners at other facilities. Therefore, our pediatric specialists use equipment, techniques and facilities specifically designed for children.
For example, children cannot always say what is bothering them. They cannot always answer medical questions, and are not always able to be patient and helpful during a medical exam. Pediatric specialists know how to examine and treat children in a way that helps them become relaxed and cooperative.
Patient areas are arranged and decorated with children in mind. This includes inpatient and examination rooms and waiting areas, which may have toys, videos and books for children, all of which help create a comfortable and non-threatening environment for young patients.
