Long a leader in advanced pediatric care, Baptist Hospital opened Baptist Children's Hospital to bring together all health care services for children from birth to age 18. More than 200 pediatricians and 100-plus pediatric subspecialists in nearly every field, backed by pediatric- trained nurses and support personnel, offer their expertise at Baptist Children's Hospital. Among the services are a 24-hour Children's Emergency Center with child-sized equipment; intensive care units for newborns and youngsters; specialty clinics for diabetes, cancer, cystic fibrosis, heart disease and genetics.
Our hospital-based imaging center offers:
- Breast MRI
- Coronary CT angiography
- Interventional radiology
- Nuclear medicine
The entrance to Baptist Children's Hospital is located to the right of the pineapple fountain. Parking is available in the parking lots in front of the hospital, as well as the Baptist Medical Arts Building parking garage. There are designated spots for the handicapped, physicians and emergency room patients.
A new 750-space employee parking garage behind Baptist Hospital is helping ease the parking crunch for patients and visitors. The existing parking lots in front of the hospital have been redone to create angled parking and one-way traffic for more convenient parking. Also, parking attendants will be on duty at entry gates to make sure only patients and visitors use the free parking lots.
