Pediatric ER

Our pediatric ER at Wesley Medical Center is a child-friendly environment separate from our adult emergency room. Our pediatric ER includes a staff of emergency medicine physicians specializing in pediatric care, as well as pediatric dedicated nurses and child life specialists.

Our children’s ER also includes access to respiratory therapists, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals who specialize in pediatric care. The pediatric ER staff is prepared for all types of children’s emergencies, ranging from sudden illness to a life-threatening injury.

Ready Care

Wesley Medical Center’s ER also provides Ready Care services, an express lane through the emergency room in a convenient, timely setting for patients. The Ready Care service area is managed by healthcare providers trained in emergency medicine and is fully supervised by board-certified physicians.

As an alternative care route from the regular ER, patients are referred to the service through the regular emergency entrance upon arrival at the hospital. Ready Care is ideal for patients who need immediate care for a minor emergency in the Wichita area, such as sprains, sore throats, ear infections and rashes.
