Pediatric Emergency Services
While emergency departments always treat children, only a few in the region have developed specialized areas just for kids with physicians who are all specialists in pediatric emergency medicine. Saint Barnabas Medical Center has taken a true leadership role in addressing the special emergency care needs of children by providing specialized medical staff in a convenient, child-oriented environment specially designed and equipped for medical emergencies, minor illnesses and pediatric trauma.
The Pediatric Suite contains nine private patient rooms, including one equipped as a pediatric critical care room. To comfortably accommodate patients and their families, the suite’s reception area has a play facility for young patients and their siblings. A dedicated nurses’ station supports the suite’s activities.
