Your children. Precious and priceless...and they're treated that way at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center's Pediatric Unit. When it comes to caring for the little ones, we know that being in the hospital isn't the same for kids as it is for adults. And we realize parents expect only the very best care for their children.
