Emergency Medicine | Services

The Emergency Department at St. Louis Children’s Hospital receives approximately 55,000 unscheduled visits annually. We provide comprehensive emergency services, supported by a full array of medical and surgical consultants available 24 hours per day. We are also supported by state of the art imaging facilities at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. We are a state-designated Level One Trauma Center, and we receive injured children from the scene and in secondary transfer. Our innovative “Linear Design” facility, completed in 2000, has served as a model for the design of many other Pediatric Emergency facilities. We are proud of our fully electronic patient tracking and medical record and electronic communication systems. We have been recognized as one of the leading Pediatric Emergency Departments in the United States, and we receive high satisfaction ratings from our patients. We have been leaders in providing sedation and analgesia for painful procedures, and we have advanced the concept and reality of the “Ouchless Emergency Department.”
