In the early 1990's, a group of committed parents, staff, and administrative leaders accepted the challenge of creating a facility where babies, children, and families would get excellent medical care right here in Alaska. Since 1998, The Children's Hospital at Providence
has opened a newly remodeled pediatric center, subspecialty clinic, NICU, and maternity center, to provide state of the art medical treatment. Its family-centered care approach
provides the highest quality of health service in an environment that reduces stress and involves parents with every step of care. In addition, the Children's Hospital has purchased a sponsorship to a safe and secure online resource
that allows families to keep others appraised of the condition of loved ones. The use of thestatus.com
as a secure site allows parents to create and maintain a web page that not only keeps others updated, but allows people across the country to send encouraging emails.
