2012-04-01 Diamond Children's Center Review http://www.diamondchildrens.org/
My daughter recently spent two nights at the newly renovated Diamond Children's Center at UMC.   I'm not sure she wanted to leave at the end!    My impressions as a parent:

Quality of care:  Excellent.  Nursing staff is responsive and quick to come and assist for any of the various reasons the automatic equipment starts beeping (IV drip ran out; line bent; pulse monitor detached...)  Doctors come on rounds early in the morning and answer questions in detail.  

Child-friendliness:  Yep.  Unlimited family visits 24 hrs a day (they have a visitors' couch that folds out into a bed).  I found some of the nurses' hokey bedside manners a little annoying, but I think it is genuinely reassuring during painful procedures, and they clearly know what they are doing and take medical procedures extremely seriously while talking like they are entertainers at a birthday party.   They are also very good at what the signs around the building call 'painless pokes' - the CAT scan guy was not so much, but the pediatric nurses were very gentle and careful with the necessary needles.

Overall experience: Impressive - high availability of quality nurses, attractive kid-friendly renovations, low cost and decent cafeteria food, 24-hr room service, dvd library, immediate availability of labs/CAT scan results on CD.  My overall impression was very positive.  I hope we don't ever need to go back, but this is where I want to be if any of my kids needs a hospital.
