Pediatrics

When your child is sick and the doctor recommends hospitalization, it can be a very frightening experience for you and your child. The Pediatrics Unit, located on the fourth floor of Lenoir Memorial, is an eight-bed unit staffed by a highly trained, professional, and compassionate nursing staff. The nursing staff is supported by a multidisciplinary team including respiratory therapists, dietitians, lab technicians, physical therapists, and case management. Pediatrics provides care for children who have fever, gastroenteritis, asthma, other respiratory disorders, and urological disorders. The unit also cares for children being treated for certain orthopedic conditions and those recovering from surgery.

Along with the excellent care provided by the Pediatrics staff, the unit provides a relaxing atmosphere for you and your child. Children love to visit the unit's colorful playroom that is well-stocked with toys, books and other items that help pass the time during their hospitalization. The staff loves to decorate the unit during special holidays so young patients can hop down the bunny trail during the Easter season or walk in the pumpkin patch at Halloween. The Pediatrics team is also very involved in numerous community educational activities such as child car safety seat inspection clinics and Youth Health Happening, a special health fair designed for youth.

The Pediatrics team wants you and your child to have the very best care while you are at Lenoir Memorial. For more information about the Peds Unit, please don't hesitate to call 252-522-7481.

Lenoir Memorial Board votes to pursue strategic partnership with Novant Health

After a yearlong selection process for a strategic partner, the Lenoir Memorial Board of Directors has unanimously voted to pursue a partnership through a management agreement with Novant Health, hospital officials announced today.  The decision follows a thorough search and exploration process led by the board to select a partner who would best position Lenoir Memorial for the future of healthcare and create a stronger health system for the Kinston community.  "For more than a century, Kinston has had a community hospital and the chapter we're beginning today will preserve that legacy of local healthcare for future generations," said Gary Black, president and CEO of Lenoir Memorial.  "Through an affiliation with Novant Health, we will further enhance the services we provide, ensuring that high-quality care remains close to home."  The Lenoir Memorial Board now enters discussions with Novant Health to structure the terms of the partnership, leading to the signing of the management agreement, which the board hopes to finalize this spring.
