Pediatrics residents spend time at two main locations during their pediatric training — MU Women's and Children's Hospital and South Providence Pediatrics.
MU Women's and Children's Hospital opened in September 2010. Its child-friendly atmosphere includes all-private rooms, jungle and botanical themes, a Wii game player in every room and a state-of-the-art Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
It also houses the Well Baby Nursery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit coupled with Labor and Delivery Services. Most pediatric subspecialty clinics are located in the Health Pavilion, attached to Women's & Children's Hospital.
South Providence Pediatrics is in South Providence Medical Park, about six miles from Women's and Children's Hospital. Residents maintain a continuity clinic at South Providence one half-day per week. Residents also spend one four-week block per year working at South Providence in the walk-in clinic.
In addition to Women's and Children's Hospital, Med-Peds residents will spend time at two other facilities:
University Hospital offers the only Level I trauma center and helicopter service in central Missouri. Physicians throughout the state refer many of their most complicated cases to our flagship hospital. The 247-bed hospital specializes in treating the most severe illnesses and injuries. Its seven-story Critical Care Tower provides the latest in medical technology for critically ill or injured patients.
Truman VA, across the street from University Hospital, serves 43 counties in Missouri as well as Pike County, Illinois, and is one of seven medical center facilities in the VA Heartland Network.
