Children's Specialty Care Center
In June 2015, we opened a new outpatient Specialty Care Center in West St. Louis County at I-64 & Mason Road. This new 141,000 square foot facility offers specialty services in 20 areas, including allergy/immunology/pulmonary, cardiology, orthopedics, ear/nose/throat and plastic surgery. The Center also has three operating rooms for outpatient procedures. Safety Stop is located within the Specialty Care Center where technicians properly fit car seats and bike helmets and offer home safety advice.
We strive in every way possible to center our activity around the needs of children and their families.
