Emergency Care For Kids
Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center is proud to serve the community by providing two Woodlands-area emergency rooms. Both locations are staffed by board-certified physicians and complemented by a comprehensive team of health care professionals including nurses, radiology techs and lab techs. And, about half of all our ER visits annually are children.
At the hospital
Our Level III trauma center and ER is located at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands – just off the I-45 feeder road. The facility features a suite of whimsically themed and decorated children’s treatment rooms with specialized pediatric medical equipment.
At the hospital, families have access to a trained Child Life specialist who provides emotional support for children related to illness, injury and hospitalization. A Child Life specialist assists children in understanding what a loved one may be going through in the hospital – from testing to treatment to prognosis. Our Child Life specialist holds a PhD and supports the hospital’s inpatient Pediatric Unit.
If required, children can be admitted to one of the private rooms in the Dedicated Pediatric Unit at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands.

What is the difference between urgent care and an ER?
Most insurance companies will apply a higher co-pay or fee for emergency rooms versus an urgent care setting. Pick the level of care most suited to your needs.
It is a good idea to call ahead to either an urgent care or an ER if you have any questions or want to let them know that you are on your way. Have a plan in mind when it comes to where you will go in an emergency.
- Urgent care centers are for after-hours times or when you cannot access your child’s doctor in a timely fashion and you feel that your child cannot wait for a standard appointment (e.g. colds, ear infections, stomach virus).
- Emergency Rooms are for injuries requiring stitches, broken bones, trauma, or more severe and potentially life threatening issues such as uncontrollable bleeding, a high fever or fever that is uncontrollable, unresponsiveness, lethargy, head injury with vomiting (possible concussion).
