"Because Children are Special...
...they deserve the best possible health care given in a positive, family-centered atmosphere of friendliness, cooperation, and support - regardless of race, religion, or ability to pay."
...their medical needs are closely related to their emotional and informational needs; therefore, the total child must be considered in treating any illness or injury."
...their health care requires family involvement, special understanding, special equipment, and specially trained personnel who recognize that children are not miniature adults."
...their health care can best be provided by a facility with a well-trained medical and hospital staff whose only interests and concerns are with the total health and well-being of infants, children, and adolescents."
