The dedicated, 11-bed pediatric Emergency Room will provide a complete range of emergency services to care for children from birth through age 21, in addition to scheduled imaging tests.
The new facility, located at the corner of Clearview Pkwy and Veterans Blvd, will offer 24/7 full-service emergency care. The comprehensive emergency center connects specialized pediatric emergency services with Children’s Hospital’s network of pediatric specialists. Diagnostic imaging services will include CT Scans, X-Ray, and Ultrasound.
In addition to the new, Metairie-based Emergency Room, Children’s Hospital operates two other emergency departments, including at West Jefferson Medical Center, and at the hospital’s main campus in New Orleans, which houses the largest pediatric emergency department in Louisiana, with 30 beds and more than 40,000 patient visits per year.
