Why choose our Pediatric ER
In an emergency, kids need the right care fast. That’s why our pediatric ERs are set up specifically for the needs of children.
With pediatric emergency physicians and experts covering more than 30 pediatric specialties, we are ready for just about anything. And, if additional care is needed, choosing a Banner Health emergency department ensures that your child’s electronic medical records will be available at any of our Banner Health facilities. That saves more than just paperwork; it informs every health professional your child encounters of medication and imaging history, which can prevent unnecessary exposure to radiation and prescription mix ups. You can relax knowing that your child is getting the safest possible care.
Our Child Life specialists explain medical procedures to your child and provide distractions to reduce stress.
Our Pain Management program is dedicated to keeping your child comfortable and provides options like “ouch-free” shots and IVs. Our team draws upon the expertise of a wide range of pediatric subspecialists, including orthopedics, surgery, plastic surgery and neurosurgery.
