The Dan Dierdorf Emergency and Trauma Center at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital is a designated Level I Pediatric Trauma Center in both Missouri and Illinois. Nearly 53,000 children visit our Emergency Department each year for all types of injuries and illness, ranging from sprains, asthma attacks, viral illness, and serious traumatic injuries.

We strive to provide exceptional care to our patients and their family by exemplifying our mission and values in all that we do. Since we work exclusively with children's health emergencies, parents can rest assured that no other medical center is more qualified to care for children in crisis than SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. We know that treating a child is not like treating a small adult. Children have very special physical, developmental, pharmacological and psychological needs.

We have an exceptional staff of Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Administrative Support, ED Techs, and Paramedics in our Emergency Department and through our exceptional health care services we reveal the healing presence of God.

If you or your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency or injury, please call 911.
