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.

In fact, the Louisiana Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Governor’s Advisory Council – made up of parents, physicians and other professionals – presented the kids E.R. with its highest honor, Gold Bear status. The kids E.R. is the only Emergency Department in Acadiana given this top designation.

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.
