Meet P'Tooey, the fish who is the mascot, companion and friend for children hospitalized at Holy Cross Hospital.
Holy Cross Hospital's 26-bed Pediatric Center cares for inpatients, ambulatory surgery patients and short-stay patients with a wide range of medical conditions. The center is designed specially for the care and comfort of children, from newborns through adolescents.
We understand how stressful a hospital stay can be for children and their parents. That's why Holy Cross Hospital's Pediatric Center features special menu items to cater to children's tastes and a playroom filled with toys, not tests, allowing children a place to enjoy themselves.
Our playroom is a safe place where no medical procedures are performed. All essential care is provided in the care center's separate treatment room, which has the dual function of emergency care area and medical procedure room. A separate treatment room helps children associate their hospital beds with relaxation and recovery.
We treat parents as active participants, not simply visitors, in the care of their child. Parents may stay overnight with their child and order meals from our At Your Request room service menu for themselves and other visitors. Holy Cross Hospital's Pediatric Center is a secure unit with restricted access to ensure the safety of your child.
