KidSTOP One Stop for Physician-Ordered Test and Outpatient Treatments

At The Children's Hospital of San Antonio, KidSTOP is a service that offers a convenient place for pediatric patients to receive physician-ordered tests and outpatient treatments that do not require an Emergency Room visit. This is all offered in a warm, kid-friendly environment with a staff that is sensitive to the feelings of fear or anxiety that children may experience in the Hospital.

KidSTOP performs testing and/or treatment with a physician order so the child can go home after therapy is complete.
