East Emergency Department
Memorial Hospital East has a 24/7 emergency department staffed by specially trained emergency medicine physicians.
To meet the emergency medical needs of our Shiloh/O'Fallon-area patients, we have 12 beds (six beds/six observation beds), two triage rooms, and a bay area. We also have an easily accessible helipad. In addition, there is a decontamination entrance in the ambulance entryway.
Kids aren’t just small adults!
With age-specific developmental needs and weight-based treatments, it’s important to have experienced pediatric nurses and physicians who know children – inside and out – and kid-sized equipment. Kid-friendly amenities also help make your child’s experience a little bit less scary at Memorial East.
We care for pediatric emergencies including:
- Minor injuries
- Asthma and respiratory illnesses
- Belly pain
- Broken bones
- Cuts, scrapes and sprains
In cases where more specialized care is required, the team will quickly arrange for transport to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
