Expert medical consultation, legal testimony and community education

SLUCare's division of child protection provides expert assessment of victims and suspected victims of child maltreatment, including physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. Both inpatient and outpatient consultative services are provided at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. Outpatient clinical services are also provided through the St. Clair County Child Advocacy Center.

We offer education about child protection to the medical, legal, child protective services, and law enforcement communities. We also offer education and crisis intervention to families on a regular basis. We work with community agencies to facilitate optimal care and services for abused children. We also provide expert medical consultation and testimony to the legal community.
