SLUCare pediatric emergency medicine physicians are the emergency room doctors at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. Our physicians treat nearly 60,000 children in the emergency department annually, including approximately 400 who require admission to Cardinal Glennon's pediatric intensive care unit. An emergency medicine pediatrician is on site around the clock for emergency care, consultations and support of the transport team.
All SLUCare pediatric emergency medicine physicians are certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Pediatric Advanced Cardiac and Trauma Support (PACTS). These specialists work collaboratively with pediatric surgeons, critical care physicians, radiologists and others to provide the highest level of care. In an emergency, your child could not be in better hands.
