CHOP Pediatric Emergency Care at PMC
Outstanding, timely care is delivered by a skilled clinical team that includes board certified emergency medicine physicians and specially trained physician assistants and nurses who work directly with the pediatric hospitalists from CHOP to provide age-appropriate care to all pediatric patients.
CHOP pediatric hospitalists – pediatricians who specialize in caring for patients in the hospital and do not have outpatient practices – are on-site at the hospital 24/7 to consult on emergency cases involving infants, children and adolescents in PMC’s Emergency Department.
To further enhance the comfort and care of pediatric patients and their families, our state-of-the-art Emergency Department features an area specifically designated for infants, children and adolescents who require acute care.
To provide children and parents even more timely and convenient access to world-class care, a pediatrician from CHOP is on-site in the Emergency Department every day from 2 to 10 p.m., during the hours when children most frequently visit. At other times, they may be on the inpatient pediatric unit, but are easily accessible.
