Kingwood Medical Center (KMC) has expanded the hours of the area’s only pediatric emergency room starting April 1. The pediatric emergency department has provided high-quality, personalized and compassionate care to children in a safe, comfortable and child-friendly environment close to home since August 2015.
KMC is the leading provider of women and children’s services in Northeast Houston.
Melinda Stephenson, CEO, said, “We are proud to increase the level of high-quality care by expanding the hours to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our board-certified pediatricians, emergency room physicians, and registered nurses offer the expertise, technology and gentle hands needed to treat all major and minor emergencies for children from newborns to 18- year-olds.”
KMC provides treatment for a range of pediatric specialties, including cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, pulmonology, neonatology, ophthalmology and more.
If your child needs to be admitted to the hospital for further care, the transition to the pediatric specialty unit is seamless.
Stephenson said, “The opening of our pediatric emergency center reinforces our hospital's commitment to meet the present and future health care needs of the communities we serve. Quality care, close to home.”
