Shaping tomorrow's health care with you.

Pediatrics

Pediatrics is the specialty that looks after children from birth up to the age of 18. As a result, this discipline looks after young patients who are still growing and developing – physically, mentally, emotionally and intellectually – which raises specific health problems.

Our pediatric department is dedicated to providing patients with multidisciplinary care. A specialist team of doctors, nurses and nursing assistants care for children, from birth up to the age of 18, and their families in a facility dedicated to their well-being.

Why choose Hôpital de La Tour?

Multidisciplinary care

Our sizable team of on-site specialists from different fields within pediatrics delivers comprehensive care for your child’s medical condition, health and well-being. Our specialists always work as a dedicated team and, in some cases, may meet for a specific consultation or procedure.

Bedside ultrasound

Bedside ultrasound saves time and improves efficiency without exposing patients to radiation. As a result, our doctors can perform a more detailed and thorough medical examination for patients.

Our inpatient unit

Our inpatient unit means that, if necessary, your child can stay at Hôpital de La Tour to be closely monitored or admitted and does not need to be transferred to another medical facility.

Pediatric emergency appointments

To ensure our patients have the best possible experience, emergency appointments are available during the day. As a result, you and your child do not need to wait at the hospital to be seen and can instead stay in the comfort of your own home until the time of the appointment.
