Emergency Department

Children who come to our hospital with acute illness are greeted by a nurse who performs an initial examination and discusses the concerns of each child's parents to triage the child's care. The nurse then determines whether a child's health condition is serious enough to warrant treatment in the Maurice Marciano Family Foundation Emergency Department and Trauma Center.

The Division of Emergency and Transport provides 24-hour attending coverage in the Emergency Department. Care is provided by:

  • 12 full-time physicians
  • Four part-time physicians

Attending Staff

Our attending staff is a young, energetic group of physicians dedicated to the teaching and supervision of:

  • Medical students
  • Residents
  • Pediatric emergency medicine fellows

All attendings are board-certified or board-eligible in Pediatric Emergency Medicine.  

Allied Health Professionals

Clinical services are aided by the presence of full-time social workers and interpreters. Pediatric residents from our hospital, as well as from five other pediatric, emergency medicine and family practice residency programs, rotate through the Department each year.
