Physicians specializing in pediatric emergency medicine are residency-trained in either pediatrics or emergency medicine and have completed fellowship training in pediatric emergency medicine.
Our pediatric emergency medicine physicians are trained to treat many medical conditions. Essentially all conditions perceived as emergencies can be treated at our Children’s Emergency Center including:
Bleeding that continues after 15 minutes
Falls from a significant height
Severe or persistent vomiting and/or diarrhea
The Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital Children’s Emergency Center is located adjacent to the adult Palmetto Health Richland Emergency Department at the rear of 5 Richland Medical Park Drive.
Anyone who believes their child is experiencing a medical emergency can bring their child to be seen in the Children’s Hospital Children’s Emergency Center. Occasionally, your child’s primary care physician or specialist may direct you to our center for further care and treatment.
Appointments are not accepted at the Children’s Emergency Center. Children may be seen in order of arrival, or based upon need for emergent medical treatment.
