What we do
If and when your child requires immediate medical attention, the Pediatric Emergency Division at Cohen Children’s Medical Center is here for you. We are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by board-certified pediatric emergency medicine doctors and pediatric emergency medicine nurses.
We accept walk-in patients, ambulance arrivals and those referred by pediatricians for acute care and diagnostic assistance. All patients are seen under the direct supervision of pediatric emergency medicine specialists. We provide emergency pediatric medicine care for infants, children, adolescents and young adults.
We're the largest Level I pediatric trauma center in New York verified by the American College of Surgeons. Our expert multidisciplinary team coordinates the complex care of children who have experienced traumatic injuries of all kinds.
We offer urgent care services at Cohen Children's Medical Center and through GoHealth. Our dedicated team of specialists is here when your child needs immediate treatment for an illness or injury that doesn't require an emergency room.
Our pediatric emergency psychiatry team operates a dedicated behavioral health area within the emergency department, as well as a behavioral health urgent care center on the lobby level of Cohen Children’s Medical Center.
