Pediatric Extended Care Area
When it’s a pediatric emergency, you want the best.
Children don’t get sick nor have accidents just during normal business hours. That's why Mercy Memorial’s Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing expert care for our littlest patients.
Our renovated Pediatric Extended Care Area
With our renovated Pediatric Extended Care area, we also offer inpatient care for children three months to 17 years of age who need extra attention after receiving pediatric emergency care. Pediatric extended care is available seven days a week, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
An expert pediatric care team
Our pediatric extended care team includes pediatricians and nurse practitioners who are neonatal resuscitation providers (NRP) and pediatric life support providers (PALS).
Pediatric extended care that’s focused on families
A trip to the ER can be scary for our pediatric patients, so we have focused on minimizing fear and pain throughout their stay. We’ve designed the new pediatric extended care area around the specialized needs of children – and their families.
Our new pediatric extended care area includes:
- Private rooms
- Kid-friendly décor
- Age-appropriate pediatric and family-centered care
