When does a child need emergency care? The guidelines here can help. For extra peace of mind, fill out the consent form and leave it with your babysitter or temporary guardian, in case you're not available when your child needs emergency care.
Safety and injury prevention
Our award-winning injury prevention and awareness programs will help to keep you and your family safe and sound.
Many of our hospitals feature fast-track rooms designed to treat smaller health problems such as simple fractures and cuts or on-the-job injuries. By separating patients with critical needs, those patients with minor injuries or illnesses can be seen and treated more quickly. Hours of operation vary by site.
