A Calmer ER, Just for Kids in Dallas
Medical City Children’s Hospital understands that kids need special care. That’s why our emergency room features a completely separate children’s emergency room independent from the adult emergency room. By keeping the reception and treatment rooms for children separate, we’re able to provide a more soothing environment at our emergency room and give each child the required individual attention. We know your child deserves the best possible care, so the entire staff of our emergency room is trained in emergency pediatric care. We also have medical equipment specially designed for children. Our team of emergency pediatric specialists includes board-certified pediatricians and pediatric RNs. A hospitalist is also available onsite daily and on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We also have a highly dedicated Child Life team providing a variety of services and support to our patients and their families. Every room is private with enough space for you to stay with your child. Plus, our emergency room features cheerful colors, play areas, televisions and an interactive gaming station to help our little patients stay calm and keep their siblings occupied.
Newer and Bigger for Your Convenience
We have a comprehensive emergency team — including physicians, specially trained nurses and physician assistants — to care for our patients. And with over 40,000 square feet of space in our emergency room, your child will receive the needed treatment in comfort. 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. And 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 to be admitted to the hospital. Not only does this expedite the process, it makes registration easier for you and your child.
