Pediatric Emergency Department
The Pediatric Emergency Department is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the care of pediatric patients (age 0-21 years). Staffed by Pediatric Emergency physicians and nurses, we see children and teens immediately and prioritize cases according to the level of the emergency. No matter how big or how small the emergency, we provide specialized treatment in a friendly, caring environment, 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week. It is the only dedicated facility of its type in Virginia.
