Missouri hospital closes its small pediatric unit
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, February 19, 2008
Faced with crowding in its adult unit and only limited use of its beds for children, Jefferson Memorial Hospital at Crystal City (MO) has closed its small pediatric unit. Jefferson Memorial has had a small pediatric unit since 1980, but the hospital's board decided that the need was greater for adult beds. The hospital recently has been running at or near its capacity of 170 adult beds.
