Pediatric Emergency Medicine
Children need specialized care, especially during an emergency. At the Stanford Department of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, we understand that children are not small adults, and we strive to create an environment of comfort.
As a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center, we offer comprehensive 24-hour emergency care that includes direct access to world-ranked pediatric specialists.
We are proud to train the next generation of pediatric emergency phsyicians. Our top-tier residents receive robust training in a comprehensive, immersive experience. Our two ACGME-approved fellows are focused on leading-edge research in pediatric emergency care.
Collaboration with Lucile Packard Children's Hospital
The Pediatric Emergency Department of Stanford Hospital continues to serve as the emergency treatment facility for Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. In an emergency, bring your child first to the Stanford Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department (900 Quarry Road Extension). If they need to stay overnight, Stanford will coordinate a seamless transfer of care to Packard Children's (or another appropriate facility).
