Taking your child to the emergency room is stressful, so we've gone to great lengths to make our facilities as child-friendly as possible. The Pediatric Emergency Room is inside the Children’s Hospital – completely separate from the adult Emergency Room – and includes 20 private, brightly decorated rooms to help your child feel as calm and comfortable as possible.
Because children's medical needs are vastly different from those of adults, we offer advanced equipment especially designed for diagnosing and treating medical emergencies in kids, from infants as small as 6 pounds to adolescents up to 18 years of age. To minimize your wait time, lab tests and X-rays are offered inside the Pediatric Emergency Department.
Equipped to handle a wide range of medical problems, our team is made up of surgeons, physicians, nurses, social workers and rehabilitation therapists who have specialized training and expertise in caring for children. Patients requiring additional care beyond the Emergency Room can be admitted to The Children's Hospital, just upstairs. Sacred Heart provides children's medical care across 30 pediatric sub-specialties.
