Children's ERs:

Emergency Rooms Cater to Kids

health watch

A trip to the emergency room can be a frightening experience for both child and family. To ease the anxiety, our three pediatric emergency rooms cater specifically to children's needs. These family-centered facilities are located at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, Memorial Hospital West and Memorial Hospital Miramar. Each location is decorated with a different, child-friendly theme.

While the atmosphere of each facility provides a welcome diversion during stressful times, most outstanding is the fact that children receive comprehensive world-class pediatric emergency care. Our facilities offer board-certified pediatric specialists, including cardiovascular surgeons, oncologists, orthopedic surgeons, intensivists and other specialties.
