Thursday, April 28, 2011 - 4:53pm

The area’s only pediatric ER is recognized for excellence in care Thursday. Our Lady of the Lake’s Children’s Hospital is the first in the state to receive the Gold Bear Award.

"We really feel like pediatric patients are not little adults,” says Nicole Telhieard, administrator at OLOL Children’s Hospital. “They have special needs, special illnesses and treatment plans that are much different than an adult patient."

Staff had to receive extra training and participate in continuing education to qualify for the award.
