About Our Emergency Department
It is our goal to get your child seen as quickly as possible, and connected with the treatment or follow-up they need. While we strive to see your child as quickly as possibly, there are times when other children who are more critically-ill or injured need our attention first. Please know we are dedicated to providing the best care possible for your child.
Our emergency department consistently scores in the top 90th percentile in our patient satisfaction surveys - as compared to other hospitals across the country. Thank you for putting your trust in us to care for your children in times of need.
