State-of-the-Art Pediatric Emergency Room
Located at Shands at the University of Florida, the new Pediatric ER has a separate entrance with free valet parking for adults transporting children and features a kid-friendly nautical theme. More important, families have access to an expanded team of UF pediatric emergency medicine physicians and Shands pediatric emergency-trained nurses, additional treatment space and the latest technology.
The Pediatric ER is staffed by seven pediatric emergency medicine physicians and 22 Shands pediatric-trained emergency medicine registered nurses. The team is able to treat up to 24,000 pediatric emergency patients a year.
Pediatrics After Hours is also located in the Pediatric ER. Pediatrics After Hours is a collaborative effort between UF doctors and Shands nurses and community pediatricians, who provide urgent primary care and non-emergency services.
