During these challenging times, it is important not to delay care for your child’s emergencies. When your child is sick or hurt, there is no better place to go than the Pediatric Emergency Department at Stanford Medicine. We are the only emergency department in the area that is uniquely prepared for pediatric emergencies, and we are taking every precaution to keep patients and families safe during COVID-19.
Separate from the Marc and Laura Andreessen Adult Emergency Department, the Marc and Laura Andreessen Pediatric Emergency Department is a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center providing comprehensive 24-hour emergency care with direct access to world-class pediatric specialists. With technology and innovative treatments designed with children in mind, care from Stanford Medicine doctors and staff who are specially trained in caring for children, and an emphasis on preventing and avoiding pain in our patients, the Marc and Laura Andreessen Pediatric Emergency Department provides an atmosphere and environment that is calming and non-threatening for your child.
Children who require additional care can be admitted to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, just down the hall from our emergency department. Since Packard Children’s provides high level care in all pediatric specialties, there is no need to transfer your child to another hospital.
