LSU Medical Center is making sure you have somewhere to take your child if they need urgent care.
In the wake of the closing of Sutton Children’s Emergency Room, LSU will be adding more staff and services to meet the anticipated increase in the number of children who may require medical attention.
There will be additional pediatric examination rooms and extra personnel will be assigned during the late afternoon and early evening hours when most ER visits occur.
LSU is also working to address the need for Pediatric Intensive Care beds for children with critical illnesses or injuries.
This expansion is expected to be wrapped up by Sept. 1.
