The BCHS is this region’s provider for Paediatric Services. The BCHS is committed to providing high quality, excellent care in a safe and warm environment to our youngest patients as part of our Maternal Child Service.
- With an 8-bed inpatient unit, we serve more than 700 paediatric inpatients annually as well as more than 12,000 patients that come through our emergency department. Our paediatric inpatient unit was recently moved from the 8th to the 4th floor to support integration with our maternal child program. Our paediatric inpatient unit provides 24-hour medical, surgical and mental health services. It is our goal to ensure this inpatient unit is renovated and equipped to support the unique needs of this population.
- Infants requiring inpatient care after birth can also be admitted to our paediatric unit or our special care nursery depending on their care needs.
- The Family Birthing Centre at The Brantford General welcomes approximately 1400 births a year, and this number is expected to increase over the next few years.
- Surgical services at the Brant Community Healthcare System treats more than 500 paediatric patients annually. Most of these patients undergo ear, nose and throat (including tonsillectomy) and Orthopaedic procedures.
