Pediatric Emergency Department

Highly-qualified and specially-trained team

Our Pediatric Emergency Department is managed and staffed by highly qualified and specially trained nurses, Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) and physicians. These healthcare professionals have extensive experience in caring for children and young adults with emergency needs which may range from minor injuries to life threatening conditions. Our pediatric emergency physicians who are either board-certified in pediatric emergency medicine or pediatrics, staff the department 24/7 with the help of Advanced Practice Nurses.
