Every detail designed with our youngest patients in mind at the only dedicated pediatric emergency department between Los Angeles and Madera.
With the establishment of the Lauren Small Children’s Center in 2012, Memorial Hospital took a major step towards realizing its vision of providing comprehensive and specialized pediatric care close to home for the children of our community.
The Robert A. Grimm Children’s Pavilion for Emergency Services is the only dedicated pediatric emergency department between Los Angeles and Madera and completes the continuum of care for pediatric patients in Kern County.
The Lauren Small Children’s Center at Memorial Hospital consists of:
The Children’s Pavilion is located adjacent to the existing emergency department and features separate waiting and treatment areas for pediatric patients. It includes an urgent care “fast track” exclusively for these patients.
All patients are seen by doctors and nurses specially trained in pediatric medicine. The Children’s Pavilion enables Memorial Hospital to deliver essential care in a comforting environment for children and their families.
As an added benefit, with our Online Waiting Room, you can choose an estimated arrival time online so you and your child can wait in the comfort of your home, rather than the ER.
