Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center

Our Children’s Emergency Department is exclusively dedicated to emergency care and treatment of infants, toddlers, young children and adolescents to age 17. Our family-friendly environment provides children and their families a relaxed, comfortable visit.

When caring for children, our medical and nursing staff understands that children are not small adults-they have unique needs for their still-growing bodies. That's why parents can be confident that when they bring their children to our Children's Emergency Department they will receive the most advanced pediatric emergency care from specially trained staff who love working with kids. Our team and facility are equipped to handle a wide range of medical problems. 

We treat anything from:

  • Infectious conditions such as flu, acute gastroenteritis, croup and bronchiolitis
  • Chronic, recurrent illnesses such as asthma, cancer, or seizures
  • Acute traumatic injuries
  • Critical illnesses  

Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with the latest technology for critical and trauma care, private exam rooms, and medical equipment specially sized and designed to fit children of all ages and sizes. It also offers aquatic-themed décor, colorful murals, kid-sized furniture, and flat-screen TVs with kids programming, which allow children to feel at ease while they wait and are cared for.

Children who require additional care can be admitted to Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center, just down the hall from our emergency department. Since we provide high level care in all pediatric specialties, there is no need to transfer your child to another hospital.

Children who need emergency care can be treated at PSJMC’s Emergency Department, which is available around the clock.
