Inpatient Pediatric Unit at Lovelace Westside Hospital



We are here when our youngest patients need us most

Lovelace Westside Hospital is proud to announce the opening of the Westside's only Inpatient Pediatric Unit. Beginning spring 2012, our unit will offer a broad range of child-centered services for the medical, surgical and chronic illness management our patients need. This unit is designed with families in mind to treat patients from infancy through adolescence. Our pediatricians are committed to offering the highest quality of pediatric medical care while also providing continuity of care through communication with patients' pediatricians, nurses and families.

Inpatient pediatrics – just another way we care for our neighbors on the Westside and in Rio Rancho.
