Families in Illinois now have closer access to the highest-rated pediatric care in the metro area.
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 Belleville and 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.
Washington University neonatologists and pediatricians from St. Louis Children’s Hospital provide coverage for all newborns at the Family Care Birthing Center at Memorial Hospital East, including those who may require care in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU).
During every high-risk delivery, in addition to the delivery team, there is a pediatrician or neonatologist, and a specially-trained nurse who are there specifically for the babies.
Should a baby require surgery or an extremely high level of care, he or she will be transferred to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
