Medical/Surgical/Rehab Nursing

For Current and
New Employees


An Interdisciplinary Approach Makes a Difference

The medical and surgical inpatient units at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Main Campus offer a real opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child — and yours as well. There are five inpatient medical units for children with acute and chronic medical problems, and a rehab unit. Designated medical specialties are clustered on specific units. In addition, there are two units for children with surgical problems — one for general surgery, trauma, liver and renal transplantation, and another specializing in surgical subspecialties, including a neuroepilepsy monitoring program. That’s how we’re able to treat 17,000 infants, children and adolescents each year.

Our nurses work side-by-side with top pediatricians and surgeons in an interdisciplinary team. In addition, you’ll receive invaluable support from an experienced nursing staff with years of success in helping people adapt to their new position in this essential field.
