Pediatric Care

Children's hospital care in Metairie, LA

A hospital to grow into

Children everywhere represent new beginnings. The Tulane Lakeside Hospital for Women and Children provides for the healthcare needs of all of our children, today, tomorrow and beyond. Tulane administers world class medical care within a nurturing environment to make each child's visit as pleasant as possible. From clinic visits to hospital stays, we use therapeutic play to help children deal with their fears and explain procedures and treatments in a non-frightening way.

Tulane's general pediatric physicians specialize in the routine care of infants, children and adolescents, providing excellent healthcare services to pediatric patients ranging from diagnosis and treatment of minor illnesses to routine checkups. Our board-certified pediatricians are also trained to tackle more serious illnesses - with all the backup of an array of pediatric specialists. Our clinics are staffed with experienced physicians, nurses and staff who offer children of all ages a full spectrum of primary care services in a kid-friendly environment. Our mission is to promote the health and well-being of children and families, through excellence in care.
