Children’s Emergency, Pediatric Surgery and Recovery
The ground floor is home to Saskatchewan’s first dedicated pediatric surgery suites, with integrated induction rooms. This allows parents to be with their child while anesthesia is administered. The ground floor is also home to the pediatric emergency department with trauma spaces.
The Pediatric Emergency is a calming space where children can feel secure and cared for while receiving emergency medical attention.

Once arriving through the main entrance of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital, families are in the lobby area, which includes many family-friendly amenities. Canada’s first Teammates for Kids Child Life Zone which hosts The Mosaic Child Life Program is also located on the main floor.
Pediatric Outpatients in the Leslie and Irene Dubé Centre of Care for Children has three times more exam room space than before. Here, young patients visit their specialist or other health care provider for appointments relating to general pediatrics, cancer, cardiology, hearing and gastroenterology.
Pediatric Inpatient Unit, Pediatric Intensive Care/Observation Unit
This floor is dedicated to pediatric inpatient care, with areas designated for Acute Care Pediatrics, a unique Observation area and a special zone for Saskatchewan’s only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).
Additional features include: special family spaces, an outdoor patient play area, a school room and access to cutting-edge testing, as well as our province’s first Pediatric Sleep Lab, which means children no longer need to travel out of province for sleep studies.
For the first time, maternal care is on one floor, allowing moms-to-be to labour, give birth and stay with their new baby and supportive partner in the same private room. This floor features three dedicated maternal operating rooms and the Maternal Outpatient Clinic with fetal assessment.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides 24-hour care to infants who are critically ill or require tightly-controlled environments in which to recover. Prematurely-born babies fall in this category quite often, and are regularly given treatment in the NICU until they are strong enough to survive on their own.
The NICU offers each baby and family a private room, which is dramatically different from what previously existed, where babies were cared for in side-by-side open bays. The private rooms include a sleep space and offer added confidentiality, while allowing parents to be engaged in their newborn’s care.
