When your child needs emergency care, our pediatric emergency medicine specialists have the expertise and compassion to care specifically for younger patients.

Pediatric emergency medicine specialists at Pediatrix are highly trained and prepared to treat children in crisis. With expertise and compassion, our specialists manage the urgent needs of infants, children and adolescents with acute, and sometimes life-threatening, illness, injury or trauma. Highly experienced at quickly identifying and diagnosing illnesses and conditions in children, our specialists prescribe immediate treatment plans specific to younger patients.
