We're the only hospital in the region with a designated Pediatrics Department. Since 1948, when Southeast established its Pediatrics Service, little folks and their care have been an important part of our services. And because each child who comes to Southeast is unique, so are each of the unit's 8 private rooms and two-bed Pediatrics Special Care Unit.
