Making Kids BettE.R.

kids E.R. ready for any emergency,

even long after night-night.

Tummy aches, fever and ouchies don’t keep the same hours as your pediatrician, unfortunately.

That’s why the kids E.R. at Women’s & Children’s Hospital – the only Emergency Department in Acadiana dedicated to caring for the special needs of children ages newborn to 17 – is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by board-certified pediatricians. The kids ER at Women’s & Children’s Hospital is the only facility in Acadiana and the second in the state to achieve “Gold Bear Designation” status presented by the Louisiana Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Governor’s Advisory Council. Gold Bear status is a designation of EMSC and the Louisiana EMSC Governor’s Advisory Council Hospital Recognition Program. Gold Bear status is evaluated based on board certifications of physicians, pediatric safety program implementation, physician and nurse emergency department staff designations, and other areas of pediatric emergency care.

kids E.R. physicians and nurses are backed by a growing team of pediatric specialists located right here in the heart of Acadiana, so there is no need to travel for the care you need. And, you get to sleep in your own bed at night.

Minutes matter, especially when your child is in pain or not feeling well. The kids E.R. has some of the shortest average wait times in the region.

Text “ER” to 23000 and reply with your Zip to see the average times patients have been waiting to see a physician in the kids E.R. Or, see the average wait times at www.Womens-Childrens.com.
