EMS & Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children at Presbyterian/ St. Luke's Medical Center
A Pediatric Pre-Hospital Care Resource for Emergency Medical Services
Welcome EMS providers! In addition to providing exceptional patient care, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children (RMHC) at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s (P/SL) Medical Center is dedicated to providing support and educational opportunities to the EMS community.
About RMHC at P/SL
More than two decades ago, a group of pediatric specialists came together at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center to establish a regionally renowned center for specialized pediatric care. Their expertise ranged from caring for high-risk births, neonates and infants to complex health concerns for children and teens.
We blend the most advanced pediatric clinical care with an exceptional level of personalized attention for each patient.
Today, our anchor facility, RMHC at P/SL, encompasses a 160,000-square-foot pediatric care center and a 10,000-square-foot pediatric-focused medical building.
