St. Joseph in Towson Offers Pediatrics After Hours

St. Joseph Medical Center, Towson, Md., offers a new service, Pediatrics After Hours, as an extension of its Emergency Department. Open noon until midnight, seven days a week, the service provides expert pediatric care when physician offices are closed or unable to accommodate urgent or emergent visits. Specialized pediatric physicians and nurses provide care for illness and injury. The service is available by appointment, which enables sick children to wait at home, or walk-in.
