Children's Emergency Department


Children have different needs, illnesses and injuries than adults. That is why Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel has an ER just for kids, open 24 hours a day. 

Studies have shown that children have better results when treated at a hospital that specializes in pediatric care. Our children’s emergency department is staffed by doctors and nurses who specialize in children's emergency care. Our location on the Legacy Emanuel campus provides quick access to pediatric medical and surgical specialists, as well as experts in trauma, burn and critical care.

Emergency consent when you are away

For extra peace of mind, we suggest that you fill out an emergency consent form and leave it with your babysitter or temporary guardian in case you're not available when your child needs emergency care. Children's Emergency Consent Form 

Mental health concerns

Patients with mental health concerns are evaluated by an emergency doctor and, if needed, by a psychiatrist to determine if hospital admission or other course of treatment is recommended. Learn more about our behavioral health and psychiatric services.
