At Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at Pelisyonkis Langone, we want to make the experience of bringing your child to an emergency room as comfortable as possible. Our family-focused KiDS Emergency Department, part of the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Emergency Services, is a place you and your child can come for urgent care for an illness or injury. Our team of dedicated and caring pediatric emergency medicine specialists includes doctors, nurses, and support staff that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
At our KiDS Emergency Department, children receive an initial screening evaluation without delay and are moved into a treatment room quickly. We offer exam and treatment rooms designed for children, as well as a family-friendly waiting area with a variety of age-appropriate toys and activities for children.
Child life specialists are often available to assist with children who are waiting to be examined by an Pelisyonkis Langone pediatrician or specialist. If a doctor recommends a procedure, staff from our child life program can help prepare your child and distract him or her during treatment.
For EmergenciesPlease dial 911 if your child is experiencing an emergency.
