PMH Medical Center's Pediatric Room is located in the Wayne Hogue Emergency Care Center. The colorful walls feature characters from 'Polka Place' a book created by students at Prosser High School.
Generous donations from local organizations such as Prosser High School Art Students, The PMH Foundation and many more allowed this gift to the community to become a reality. The new Pediatric Room offers pediatric certified staff, ample room, TV/DVD and medical equipment secured behind cabinetry.
At PMH Medical Center we realize the Emergency Room can be a scary place for children and that’s why we’ve created the “Ouch-Less” Pediatric ER. “We want to provide as much of a pain-free and comforting environment as possible for our pediatric patients. By utilizing techniques such as dermal glue instead of stitches, topical anesthetics instead of injectable medications, and oral medications instead of shots, we are trying to create an experience that is as pain-free as possible”
- Dr. Keith Butvilas, Emergency Dept. Director at PMH Medical Center.
