Emergency Medicine

When your child has a medical emergency, such as an illness or injury, you want to be sure that the emergency department is equipped to deliver the highest-quality and most technically advanced care.

Our emergency department team takes care of ill and injured children throughout the tri-state area, as well as from the Washington Heights community. Our services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with trained pediatric emergency medicine physicians, nurses and other health professionals on staff at all times.

In addition to our primary medical team, your child will also be cared for by a superb support staff of social workers, emergency room technicians, nurse aides, patient navigators, child life specialists and foreign language interpreters, if needed. Our facilities include private and specialized treatment rooms as well as on-site diagnostic services, such as x-ray and lab tests, so your child usually does not have to go elsewhere within the hospital for routine testing.
