Phone calls answered 24 hours a day
Illness and injuries are not predictable — especially when it comes to kids. That's why your phone calls are answered 24 hours a day/7 days a week. At all three clinics, calls are answered by clinic staff, after hours triage nurses or by HealthEast's answering service. If you have an urgent need, you will be connected to an after hours triage nurse or the doctor on call.
When needed, pediatric patients are hospitalized at Children's Hospital in St. Paul, St. John's Hospital in Maplewood and Woodwinds Health Campus in Woodbury. A HealthEast pediatrician makes daily rounds to see all hospitalized patients.
Newborns are seen at St. Joseph's Hospital, St. John's Hospital, Woodwinds Health Campus and United Hospital by a pediatrician for an initial exam after birth and then daily while in the hospital.
