At Chilton Medical Center we understand that kids aren’t just little people, which is why have a Pediatric Emergency Department exclusively dedicated to the needs of children ages newborn to 17. We’re fully equipped to handle all kinds of childhood emergencies from sports injuries and appendicitis to asthma attacks and high fevers.
Features of our 24/7 Pediatric Emergency Department
All children are seen by certified emergency pediatricians and nurses extensively trained in pediatric care and certified in pediatric advanced life support. In addition, our patient rooms are child-friendly and adorned with under-the-sea murals and cartoon canines to help ease fears.
When specialized services are needed, Goryeb Children’s Hospital can seamlessly provide care for our pediatric patients.
Emergency Care During the Coronavirus Outbreak
If you are experiencing a serious illness or severe symptoms of any kind, please do not put off seeking emergency medical care due to fears of coronavirus. Delaying emergency medical help could worsen symptoms or result in a life-threatening situation. In the event of a medical emergency, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1.
