About Pediatrics

Because Doylestown Hospital strives to improve the quality of life for all members of the community by providing compassionate, exceptional health care to all, we recognize the need for pediatric expertise close to home. That is why our expert inpatient care extends to all ages, including infants, children and teens, in the new Doylestown Health Carol and Louis Della Penna Pediatric Center.

Our young patients come to us either through the Doylestown Hospital Emergency Department, which sees approximately 8,000 pediatric visits annually, or they are referred to the hospital by their pediatrician or family practitioner.

Our Philosophy of Care: A Family-Centered Environment

We provide family-centered care in a compassionate and supportive environment. We consider parents or caregivers as a part of the child's care team. Pediatricians meet with parents/caregivers to discuss the child's diagnosis, needs and treatment options. The center provides overnight accommodations for parents (in-room with child) and a play area for patients or siblings.

Della Penna Pediatric Center services extend beyond the hospital setting to include health and wellness education, sports injury prevention, nutrition services and other support services within the community.

  • Pediatric Outreach and Education

    Doylestown Health Pediatric Services extend beyond the Hospital and into the community through partnerships with local school districts and youth organizations.
