ALWAYS HERE. ONLY FOR KIDS.
Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children has the only dedicated pediatric emergency room in the region. The Pediatric ER is home to pediatric specialists and on-site MRI and CT imaging.
Relieving pain, anxiety and fear
Upon arrival, a registered nurse assesses your childís needs, and within minutes starts treating pain using innovative and effective pain management techniques developed specifically for children. Our child life specialists are also on hand to help relieve fear and anxiety through play, distraction and education.
The right care by the right people 24/7
When thereís a medical emergency and your pediatricianís office is closed, our Pediatric ER physicians and pediatric certified nurses can treat minor illnesses and injuries. The Pediatric ER offers a special treatment area for patients with minor complaints as determined by our physicians and nurses, which can mean a quicker ER visit with less exposure to seriously ill or injured patients.
Kid-size and kid-friendly
Adult emergency rooms can be filled with frightening sights and sounds. The Pediatric ER is cheerfully decorated and filled with kid-friendly activities. Even our medical equipment is built to better fit children and comes with special features like movie goggles for patients having an MRI.
