Pediatric Care

Your Best Medicine is Focused on Children

BJC HealthCare is committed to keeping children in St. Charles County healthy. At Progress West Hospital, we provide world-class pediatric care right where you live. And through our partnership with St. Louis Children’s Hospital, you have access to specialized physicians and the only pediatric inpatient nurses in the area.

At Progress West Hospital, we're proud of our partnership with St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Thanks to this affiliation, pediatric physicians from Children’s Hospital provide care in the inpatient areas, emergency department and Birthing Center at Progress West Hospital. And if a higher level of specialized care is needed, transfers are quick and seamless as your child is already in the St. Louis Children’s Hospital system.

Children’s at Progress West Hospital is dedicated to delivering the same approach found at St. Louis Children’s Hospital: making the comfort, security and satisfaction of children and their families central to everything we do. St. Louis Children’s Hospital pediatricians work with a child’s primary pediatrician to ensure the best care possible for general medical and surgical needs. 

The pediatric nurses at Progress West Hospital all have pediatric-specific training from St. Louis Children's Hospital. Our pediatric nurses work with the pediatricians to assess and monitor the child’s care. 

For primary care, top-notch BJC Medical Group physicians and pediatricians have offices right on our campus, including Way to Grow Pediatrics, a BJC practice. Learn more about primary care here.

Specialized pediatric emergency care is also available at Progress West Hospital 24/7. Find out more.
