Pediatric Patients Treated in New Area of Hospital

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - A transition of care will begin today at the Milford Regional Medical Center with the hospital’s decision to close its in-patient pediatric unit.  Instead pediatric patients will be treated at a designated section of the emergency department.  The decision to end in-patient pediatric services was approved last month by the Department of Public Health and was a decision based upon low patient admissions that made it unfeasible to continue operating the unit.  Milford Regional will continue to provide a high-quality of care for kids, requiring a short hospital stay, but if children need more intensive or specialty care they’ll be transferred to Worcester or Boston.
