What we do
The Children and Women’s Health Program provides primary, secondary, and tertiary care to children and women through pediatric and women’s health specialty clinics, health promotion and education, and emergency and critical care. The dedicated staff and physicians provide high quality, client and family-centred care to patients and families.
Our program has approximately 800 health-care professionals and dozens of volunteers who provide care and services to tens of thousands of children and women per year.
- The Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre is the only pediatric tertiary and critical care facility in the province.
- Pediatric emergency care is offered at community facilities across the province.
- Obstetric care is offered at the Health Science Centre as well as three other regional sites under Eastern Health. These include the Burin Peninsula Health Care Centre, the Carbonear General Hospital and the Dr. G. B. Cross Memorial Hospital in Clarenville. To support critical care, a team of specialty trained neonatal nurses and respiratory therapists travel by air and ground ambulance within the province to transport critically ill newborns.
Gynecology and obstetrics services
- Health clinics are offered on second (2nd) floor of the Health Sciences Centre.
- Perioperative services are provided for women requiring surgery.
- To ensure children and women receive care close to their home community, health-care professionals offer primary and secondary services through travelling clinics and virtual care.
Child and family-centred care
We value the involvement of our clients and families in making critical decisions for their health. We strive to work with clients and their families in developing, monitoring and evaluating services to meet their needs.
A youth advisory council (YAC) was established in March 2021 and we are excited to work with youth, age 12-18 years. The purpose of this group is to engage youth, familiar with the health-care services delivered at the Janeway Children’s Rehabilitation Centre, to help improve quality of care. This group meets monthly to share ideas, feedback and suggestions, as we partner in service improvement planning.
We are also working to establish a client advisory council for fertility services.
