Pediatric Readiness

The National Pediatric Readiness Project represents a national initiative sponsored by the federal Emergency Medical Services for Children Program (EMSC) to ensure that emergency departments are ready to care for children. ERs were asked to take an assessment regarding available resources for the care of children and received a score based on a 100 point scale. All of HCA Midwest Health's ERs exceed the national average score.
