Children's hospital ER services
Our children's ER offers full-service pediatric emergency care. We understand that kids need special care, which is why our children's hospital has its own pediatric ER that is completely separate from the adult ER at Memorial Health. By keeping the treatment rooms for children separate, we are able to provide a soothing environment for you and your child.
Our children’s ER features 18 private rooms with televisions and cheerful colors to help our little patients stay calm. Our goal is to provide immediate bedding, which means you and your child will be taken directly to a private room as soon as one is available.
Our pediatric emergency physicians and pediatric nurses use medical equipment specially designed for children. We also have a dedicated child life team, providing support for families and communicating information in a way children can comprehend. If a hospital stay is needed, we’ll register your child at his or her bedside so you won’t have to leave the room during the admitting process.
Specialized pediatric emergency care
Our staff and physicians are specially trained to provide you and your family with high-quality pediatric care, following the guidelines for care set by the American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Emergency Physicians and Emergency Nurses Association.
