Camp Gonna-Be-Well is where children stay when admitted to AnMed Health Women's and Children's Hospital. When kids get sick, there’s no magic pill or super power to make it all better, but we come real close.
Our staff strives to make Camp Gonna-Be-Well a home away from home for patients and their families. There are 22 private rooms, each with a sleeping space for a parent. The playroom is full of fun with toys, games and kid-sized furniture to make your child’s stay as fun as possible. With access to video games, computers and DVDs, our hospital is designed so kids can be kids, even when they're sick.
Coming to Camp Gonna-Be-Well?
- Visits should be limited to 10-15 minutes.
- No more than 3 people in a room at a time.
- Visits by children younger than 14 not allowed, with exception of a patient's siblings.
When a child enters Camp Gonna-Be-Well, they are cared for by a pediatric hospitalist until they leave our hospital. Through a partnership with Greenville Health System's Children's Hospital, pediatric hospitalists are on site at AnMed Health Women's and Children's Hospital 24-hours a day, seven days a week. You could call them our "camp counselors."
Pediatric hospitalists are board-certified pediatricians who focus solely on caring for children while they are in the hospital. These specialized physicians are trained to treat children with problems such as infections, respiratory or chronic illnesses, injuries or surgery, including newborns. You might think of your child as a miniature adult, but when it comes to their health care, kids need doctors who know and understand their issues, big or small.
Our nurses, respiratory therapists and other clinical staff are also specially trained to care for pediatric patients. The clinical staff cares for patients from newborns to teens as they recover from surgical procedures, respiratory distress, infections and many other illnesses. The entire pediatric staff is trained in PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support), which equips them to care for your child in any emergency situation.
Visiting hours at AnMed Health Women's and Children's Hospital are from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily.

Once inside, late night visitors will be required to sign in with the guest ambassador and get a name tag before going to the patient’s room.
