Specialized emergency medicine care for infants, children and adolescents

Approximately 66.6 million children under 18 (20 percent of the U.S. population) are seen each year in hospital emergency departments throughout the United States. Treating younger patients is vastly different from treating adults for many reasons, such as appropriate-sized equipment and medications formulated specifically for children. That’s why pediatric emergency medicine specialists should treat children in crisis.

Pediatrix® Medical Group, part of the Pediatrix® family, offers pediatric emergency medicine services as part of its support to hospitals. Bringing expertise and compassion to their roles, our pediatric emergency medicine specialists manage the urgent needs of infants, children and adolescents with acute, and sometimes life-threatening, illness, injury or trauma. Highly experienced at quickly identifying and diagnosing illnesses and conditions in children, they can prescribe immediate treatment plans specific to younger patients.
