Ped Emergency After Hrs Care 1

At UM St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, our after-hours pediatric emergency department provides urgent care for children and peace of mind to parents from noon to midnight, every day.

As an extension of the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Emergency Department, our expert pediatric emergency team is available when your regular pediatrician is closed or unavailable for urgent or emergency visits.

Specialized pediatric doctors and nurses provide care for virtually all types of illness in infants and children through age 18. Physicians of our Emergency Department treat injuries.

You can be assured that your child will have access to the full range of providers, equipment and services available in our Emergency Department and throughout our hospital, if and as needed.
