We are pleased to announce the expansion of our Pediatric Subacute Unit.
The 8-bed expansion brings the unit to 30 beds. “We are very grateful
for all the hard work that has brought us to this day” said Richard
Castro, Whittier Hospital’s CEO. “Most importantly, not only
we are very excited about the expansion, but we know that this children
are going to receive the loving care and the attention that our current
22 residents receive” he added. The Children's Center was designed
for children who are too ill and too technologically dependent to receive
care at home. The Children's Center is located on the Whittier Hospital
campus, and acute level services are close by should the need arise.
The Pediatric Subacute Unit is a 5-star facility, as rated by the Centers
for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for Overall Quality.
