The hospital has a 24-hour adult emergency department and cares for pediatric patients at a separate emergency department in collaboration with St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

In 2016, Missouri Baptist was named a Magnet® hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The prestigious designation is the highest credential a healthcare organization can receive for nursing excellence and quality patient care.
