Recognized among the nation’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” by U.S. News & World Report for eight consecutive years, Le Bonheur is always on the side of children, advocating on their behalf so we can provide them with the care they need.

From the ordinary bumps and sniffles of childhood to its most life-altering extremes, Le Bonheur Children’s is prepared for whatever a child’s life might throw at us. We are never surprised by what kids bring with them when they come through our doors.

It’s been that way since we opened in 1952. We’ve mattered to children every day since.

Emergency Room 

Our Emergency Room entrance is located at corner of Poplar Avenue and N. Pauline Street  and open 24 hours a day. 

Our emergency department is the only place in the region with a full staff of pediatric specialty doctors available 24-hours a day. Our team of emergency doctors and nurses work with children every day. These experts know what your child needs in an emergency and quickly provide specialized care. Our ER is the area’s only Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center. The sickest children are seen first in our ER. If possible, consult your pediatrician before bringing your child to the ER.

Parking for families using Emergency Services is available in the adjacent lot at the southwest corner of Poplar Avenue and North Pauline Street. Handicap parking is available.
