Our pediatric emergency services
We provide care in private pediatric emergency treatment rooms to protect your child's privacy and accommodate your family.
Our specially designed pediatric emergency department
Our pediatric treatment and activity areas are separate from the main emergency area, preventing children from witnessing potentially alarming adult emergencies.
The pediatric emergency department is open every day from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm. Should your child need emergency care outside of these hours, our hospital's main emergency room is open 24/7.
If your child needs to be admitted to the hospital, they will receive compassionate, highly skilled care in our secure pediatric unit.
Child-centered emergency medicine treatments
We know children are not simply “small adults.” That’s why we use specially designed, child-sized equipment, including airway management tools, gowns and IV needles. These allow us to give your child more comfortable, effective care.
- Medication management system that accounts for child's age and weight to confirm exact medication dosage
- "Ouchless" techniques, such as use of a special numbing medicine to reduce pain from a needle
- State-of-the-art diagnostics and technology delivering low-dose radiation at high speeds
All procedures are performed under the direct supervision of an emergency medicine physician. All of our nurses are certified in pediatric advanced life support (PALS).
