Comprehensive Children's Services in Henderson, NV

Compassionate Pediatric Services

St. Rose Dominican, Siena Campus offers complete, specialized pediatric services for children from birth to 17 years of age

Siena Hospital Pediatric Services

Being in the hospital can be scary for adults and kids alike. Kids are not “small adults” when it comes to medical care. Their needs - medical and emotional - are unique and require medical experts specifically trained in pediatrics to properly address and treat them.

Children’s Emergency Room

Siena Hospital's Children's ER is the city of Henderson's only pediatric Emergency Room, for children from birth to 17. The newly relocated and remodeled Children's Emergency Room is completely separate from the adult ER and provides:

  • Dedicated Children's ER entrance and waiting area
  • Child-friendly, private treatment rooms and waiting area
  • Double board-certified physicians in Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine
  • Highly trained Pediatric Registered Nurses
  • Collaborative care with your family pediatrician
  • Around-the-clock care -- available 24/7, 365 days a year

Parents may rest assured knowing their children are cared for by highly qualified and compassionate pediatricians and staff. When more than emergent care is needed, our team of pediatric ICU and hospitalist physicians, neonatal ICU physicians, pediatric surgeons and specialists, and a multi-disciplinary team, including Child Life Specialist, will collaborate with your child's pediatrician. 

We also offer InQuicker, an online ER waiting service that lets you choose an estimated hospital arrival time online so you can wait with your child from the comfort of your home. If your child is experiencing a life or limb threatening emergency or is under the age of three, please do not use the online waiting service. Call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room. 

During your family’s ER visit, use ERAdvisor to receive ER visit updates on your mobile phone.

Our pediatric nurses work as a team with board-certified physicians, Child Life Specialists, and parents to provide education and support, ensuring our smallest patients receive special care.

When our young patients start to feel better, mobile gaming units are available, so they can enjoy their favorite video games to help the hospital feel more like home.

We encourage a parent to stay in the child's room during the night. For the safety of our young patients, we limit visitors to ages 16 and older.
