A pediatric center or children’s hospital offers services exclusively to children and adolescents (from birth to 18 years of age). A children hospital is characterized by a greater focus on psychosocial support to children and their families. Many child patients have to spend longer in hospitals. Therefore having access to teaching and playing staff can also be a significant part of child care. This can also include trips to the zoo, libraries and gardens.
With psychosocial support, hospitals offer the additional benefits of being equipped by medical professionals trained in treating children. Medical doctors who undertake vocational pediatrics training must also be accepted for medical college memberships before they practice. While various regular hospitals can deal to treat children adequately, children hospitals in Israel may be a better option when it is about treating rare afflictions which may prove severely detrimental or fatal to young children, before birth in some cases.
