New Pediatric Treatment Area in the ED
As part of Our Biggest Operation: Total Renovation, LGMC’s Pediatric Treatment Area in the Emergency Department is now open. The new space includes 6 treatment bays, a private sub-waiting area and finishes and furnishings that meet the specific needs of pediatric patients. This new, separate waiting area is comforting to many parents, who prefer that their children be seen separately from adults.
Our regular emergency department staff is certified to treat pediatric patients, and will continue to do so with a high level of expertise. However, the pediatric treatment area has expanded services with pediatricians available from 10 am to midnight, Monday - Friday, and 11 am - 11 pm, Saturday and Sunday. Led by pediatricians Dr. Scott Hamilton, FAAP, and Dr. Carolyn Greene, our skilled staff stands ready to care for the children of Acadiana.
