Hersh Children's Center at Overlook Medical Center

The Hersh Children’s Center at Overlook Medical Center offers our most precious patients an exceptional level of medical care. We combine both pediatric emergency and inpatient services in one beautiful, family-friendly facility. 

Inside Hersh Children's Center

Located within the hospital, this innovative center reduces the time between an emergency department visit and admission to a hospital room when a child needs one and enables highly coordinated care. Our team of experienced pediatric doctors and nurses will be dedicated to your child from the moment you enter, through every stage of your experience.

The center features a dedicated entrance and reception area, eight all-private, state-of-the-art emergency treatment areas and nine all-private, comfortable inpatient rooms.

Emergency Care

The Michael Gordon Reeves Pediatric Emergency Department is fully equipped to handle the full range of pediatric conditions. Our emergency department is staffed 24/7 by doctors specializing in pediatric medicine. We’ve even streamlined care for minor illnesses and injuries, allowing children to remain in the kid-friendly waiting area until they receive test results, easing the stress they may be feeling.

Overnight Stays

The Meri and Sol Barer Inpatient Pediatric Unit offers special touches to make kids and their loved ones more comfortable, including sleep accommodations for parents, family lounges and a play area with skylights and lots of windows. Liam’s Room offers a special space for patients with serious chronic conditions or life-limiting illnesses.
