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 latest addition to the Lauren Small Children’s Center. The Children’s Pavilion 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 new 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.
We offer a wide variety of pediatric health care services close to home so fewer families have to travel long distances to reach children’s hospitals outside of the area.
The Lauren Small Children’s Center at Memorial Hospital is specially designed to meet the needs of younger patients. We provide:
In addition to pediatricians and surgeons, we also work closely with neonatologists, pediatric cardiologists and pediatric nephrologists.
