Every year St. Louis Children Hospital performs tens of thousands of free services for medically underserved children in the community. Our Healthy Kids Express Program’s mobile units screen children for hearing and vision problems, anemia, scoliosis and elevated blood lead levels; social workers follow up with parents when children fail screens. The hospital also provides free dental care, asthma services, health education, parenting classes, teen outreach programs, safety programs, a car seat program and medical information services including hotlines for children and adolescents and a violence prevention program.
