HCA Midwest Health - November 07, 2017

Am I supposed to take my kid to a children’s hospital if they need the ER?

At HCA Midwest Health, we have emergency departments throughout the area and expert providers ready to treat your children. We know that most kids’ emergencies do not need a hospital admission. They just need good doctors trained to help kids with fast, quality and compassionate care.

Our emergency rooms are more than ready. HCA Midwest Health facilities beat the national average for pediatric ER readiness (the national average is 69 out of 100; most of our hospitals are in the 90s or higher). In fact, we treat more than 25,000 children per year, on average. Our emergency departments are located where you live or work or (sometimes more importantly) where your kids play or go to school. Find them in Belton, Brookside, Independence, Kansas City, Lee’s Summit, Lexington, Olathe, Overland Park (3), and Shawnee.
