Committed to treating the specialized needs of children in an environment designed specifically for them, the Pediatrics Department at Saint Anthony Hospital recognizes that when it comes to children’s health, one size does not fit all.
Our goal is to provide care during hospitalization that is therapeutic, non-threatening, and comforting. Parental involvement and presence are highly encouraged. Our comprehensive Pediatrics Department includes a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient services.
The Saint Anthony Hospital Emergency Department is approved for pediatrics through a voluntary certification process of the Illinois Department of Public Health. The department handles a large number of pediatric visits; about 40% of the total visits are children.
As a community hospital, Saint Anthony Hospital has some unique features. We offer 24/7 coverage by board-certified pediatric critical care physicians. The IMCU provides continuous monitoring and treatment modalities that cannot be performed in the regular ward.
The following are some examples of conditions that are managed in the IMCU:

In the Physician Center, a provider-based location of Saint Anthony Hospital, we have board-certified general pediatricians and an array of pediatric subspecialties, another unique feature for a community hospital. The following subspecialty clinics are available:
