Northwest Community Hospital's pediatric emergency room (Peds ER) is staffed by board-certified pediatric emergency specialists on-staff at Lurie Children's and NCH. The NCH pediatric emergency department is open from 9 am to midnight daily and located in a newly renovated, child-friendly area, away from the main emergency room. Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago pediatric hospitalists are on-site 24 hours a day and are available to see children in the main ER when the pediatric ER is closed.
