At Vista Health System, we offer pediatric services designed to meet the unique health and wellness needs of newborns, infants, children and adolescents. We take a family-based approach to treatment and strive to make you and your child as comfortable as possible during your stay.
Vista Health System now offers expanded care for young patients at Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan with the addition of pediatric hospitalist physicians from Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago—one of the top ranked pediatric hospitals in the United States.
This affiliation enables 24-hour onsite coverage at Vista East by board-certified pediatric hospitalists who monitor patient care while providing clear communication and continuity with the primary care physician and specialist. In addition to seeing pediatric inpatients, these hospitalists are on call to assist with pediatric emergencies in the Vista East Emergency Room. This ensures that child and adolescent patients receive comprehensive care right in their community.
Vista East already has on-site hospitalists who see adult patients around the clock while coordinating care with family physicians and specialists. This is the first time Vista has provided full-time pediatric hospitalists.
Vista East provides family-centered pediatric care and children’s hospital services. This association with Lurie Children’s Hospital builds on Vista’s long history of providing quality pediatric care to families in the community.
Through this agreement, Vista can offer pediatric expertise associated with one of the nation’s top children’s hospitals. To find a pediatrician on staff at Vista Health System, see our Find a Doctor tab above.
