St. Louis Children's Hospital at Northwest Healthcare ER
The St. Louis Children’s Hospital at Northwest HealthCare emergency room (ER) is now staffed 24-7 by Washington University pediatricians whose entire focus is caring for children with a variety of illnesses and injuries.
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.
In cases where more specialized care is required, the staff will quickly arrange for transport to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
