Pediatric emergency care

Specialized staff provides pediatric emergency care in a kid-friendly emergency room (ER). These highly trained pediatric doctors and nurses use child-sized medical equipment to evaluate and treat your child for medical emergencies.

Children's emergency room (ER) in Fort Pierce, Florida

Although minor scrapes and bruises are part of childhood, more serious accidents sometimes happen.

When your child needs emergency pediatric care, you can count on the specialists at HCA Florida Lawnwood Hospital to provide compassionate, effective care.

Our pediatric emergency room is staffed by board-certified physicians and specially trained emergency nurses who have experience caring for children of all ages. We use leading-edge pediatric diagnostic and treatment methods to ensure your child's safety.

Our pediatric emergency room services

Our children's emergency room is the first and only of its kind on the Treasure Coast; it offers:

  • Board-certified emergency physicians trained in pediatrics
  • Board-certified pediatric subspecialists
  • Child-sized equipment, gowns, IVs, airway management tools and other medical necessities made specifically for children

Kid-friendly emergency care

We know that a visit to the emergency department can be scary for children, so our medical staff has worked hard to create a calm, nurturing environment. We have child-friendly décor and furniture, colorful artwork and an aquarium. We also understand that children have special needs when it comes to emergency care, so we tailor our bedside manner accordingly.
