Taking care of your child during an emergency is a first priority for our emergency department team. With two dedicated rooms for pediatric patients — one for major cases like automobile accidents or other serious injuries, and another for less serious illnesses and injuries. A St. Louis Children’s Hospital transport team and a MICU (mobile intensive care unit) are stationed at Alton Memorial Hospital around the clock. St. Louis Children’s Hospital is one of the top-rated children’s hospitals in the country.
Specialized rehabilitative care for your child is available from the therapists in our rehabilitation department.
