When your child has a medical need and requires hospitalization, the Alton Memorial Hospital pediatric care unit is here to provide the compassionate, safe care you expect. Staffed by registered nurses trained in pediatric care, they are here for you and your family.
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.
