The Paediatric Program treats patients from newborn up to their 18th birthday. Windsor Regional Hospital cares for a wide variety of children with diagnosis ranging from medical, surgical, oncological, and mental health issues.
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) consists of a multidisciplinary team that cares for babies who are born early with a serious illness.
Each age group of our young patients have unique needs based on their stage of development. Support for Windsor Regional Hospital’s Paediatrics Program and NICU helps ensure our littlest patients are cared for with the top state-of-the-art equipment to meet their specialized needs.
This year's Hats On For Healthcare will help raise fund to purchase the following pieces of equipment:
