Saint Anthony Hospital Pediatrics Little Tony's Outdoor Wellness

We are thrilled to announce that we added a new option for our pediatric patients and their parents to feel safer in keeping children’s appointments and wellness checks, especially as you prepare for the new school year.  “Little Tony’s Outdoor  Wellness Clinic” officially opened on Thursday, June 18th! 

Located outside the main hospital, you will be able to drive right up to the clinic tent and use your own car as a ‘waiting room’.  In addition to offering something new for kids to make their appointment more fun, the outdoor space allows for increased social distancing and less exposure to other hospital patients and visitors.   

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call: 773.484.4030


Saint Anthony Hospital cares for children and young adults in a compassionate, family-centered environment.

Committed to treating the specialized needs of children in an environment designed specifically for them, Pediatrics at Saint Anthony Hospital recognizes that when it comes to children’s health, one size does not fit all. Our comprehensive Pediatrics care includes a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient services.

  • Status asthmaticus (Severe asthma attack)

Neonatology

We provide comprehensive care to sick newborns using a multidisciplinary team approach. Experienced nurses, respiratory therapists, and neonatal nurse practitioners provide around-the-clock care under the close supervision of board-certified neonatologists.

Emergency Department

Saint Anthony Hospital is approved by the State of Illinois as an Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP) for having the essential resources and capabilities to meet the emergency and critical care needs of seriously ill and injured children.
