Keeping Kids Healthy
Queen of the Valley Medical Center's Pediatric providers specializes
in the medical, and orthopedic care of infants and children. Board-certified
pediatricians, nurses, and other health care staff are available 24 hours
a day to care for children and provide support for their parents and family.
Much of the dramatic progress made in human life expectancy during the
20th century has come not at the end of life but at the beginning. Premature
babies weighing no more than two pounds now survive and thrive. Birth
itself is no longer the danger it once was. Most of the infectious diseases
that once crippled or cut short young lives are now well under control,
and there is increasing hope for babies and children with even the most
deadly health problems. Not long ago, such miracles were the purview of
a handful of university medical centers. Now, top-quality maternal and
infant care is possible much closer to home.
In the Napa Valley, families know they can turn with complete confidence
to Queen of the Valley Medical Center because the Queen delivers what
they need. More than 1000 babies safely enter the world here every year.
Even those who are born with serious health problems are able to stay
right here, close to the families who love them, while they receive the
care that saves their lives and gives them a healthy start.
