Emergency Care for Kids—Right Here

Emergency Care for Kids—Right Here

Children’s at Memorial provides 24/7 coverage by pediatricians from St. Louis Children’s Hospital/ Washington University Physicians in Illinois, Inc. in the emergency departments at both Memorial Hospital Belleville and Memorial Hospital East in Shiloh.

Waiting rooms and pediatric treatment rooms at both hospitals have been updated to be more appealing to our younger patients.

“Having St. Louis Children’s Hospital pediatricians available 24/7 in our emergency departments allows the ability to provide high-quality care to this vulnerable population,” said Kim Howell, RN, director of Memorial’s two emergency departments.

Howell said the number of children being seen in Memorial’s emergency departments is rising. “We have received excellent feedback from the families of these children regarding the care they received here,” she said. “Many families have told us they like the convenience of having pediatricians from Children’s in the community.”
