the ER consults with the appropriate specialist first, but the
specialist comes to the patient if needed. “Most hospitals
don’t have all these pediatric specialists,” Lowe said.
When a child is ready to leave the hospital, parents have
help making the transition to home. A social worker will assist
in finding home care, arranging for medical equipment or
locating a facility suitable for the child, if needed.
“Our emergency department and children’s services unit
has been a fantastic success,” Lowe said. “And we’re always
planning ahead, watching the growth, and thinking about
what we need to do a year, three years, five years from now.”
