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.
Inpatient and Specialty Care
Pediatric illnesses that require the child to be admitted to the hospital are managed by board-certified pediatric hospitalists, critical care physicians, and specialized registered nurses 24/7. The Pediatrics floor includes an Intermediate Care Unit (IMCU) and Level II nursery. The IMCU provides continuous monitoring and treatment modalities that cannot be performed in the regular ward.
- Respiratory failure
- Noninvasive ventilation
- High-flow nasal cannula

- Status asthmaticus (Severe asthma attack)
- Post-operative monitoring
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.
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. Saint Anthony has been EDAP Certified since 1998, with extensive experience in the treatment of appendicitis, asthma, bronchiolitis and pneumonia, among other critical conditions.
