Pediatrics is a 12-bed acute care unit, located on the third floor of Oswego Hospital. This department takes care of all patients 18 years of age and younger, regardless of their diagnosis.

The pediatrics department is staffed by Professional Registered Nurses (RN's), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN's) 24 hours a day. All staff members are pediatric trained and are all PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) certified.

Oswego Hospital Pediatric Department is the only site in Oswego County, which has been certified to perform Sweat Chloride Tests. A "Sweat Test" is a noninvasive test that detects Cystic Fibrosis. The equipment, the staff training and the testing procedure have all been approved by the Cystic Fibrosis Center in Syracuse. Having the appropriate equipment at the Oswego Hospital saves parents a trip to Syracuse. The test can be scheduled any time of the day or night, 7 days a week. Physician offices can call for appointments at (315) 349-5576.

The Third Floor also provides Medical/Surgical care for adult patients. The purpose of this department is to provide quality care to the acute medical, surgical and/or injured patients. We provide an environment conducive to healing through prompt detection of emergency conditions and the prevention of complications associated with diseases and disorders. Both the Medical/Surgical and pediatric patients are cared for by nurses that are specially trained in both care areas.
