Emergency Medicine

When expert critical care is needed, you can feel confident about the Department of Emergency Medicine at St. Christopher’s. As a Level I Trauma Center, we provide comprehensive care during medical or trauma-related emergencies to more than 70,000 children and adolescents each year. With a 17,300-square-foot center containing 36 examination rooms and a trauma bay, our Emergency Center treats patients 24-hours-a-day, seven days-a-week. Board-certified pediatric emergency medicine physicians are in attendance at all times, and pediatric and surgical subspecialty care is available as needed on a consultative basis. Physicians who refer a patient for emergency evaluation are encouraged to speak with an attending physician by calling the dedicated Physician Referral Line. 

We also have a critical care transport service available to referral centers 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week. Our critical care transport teams are comprised of nurses and paramedics who provide basic, advanced and critical care under medical direction while transporting patients between facilities.
