Pediatric ER

Always here. Only for kids.

Pediatric-ERThe Pediatric ER is the only emergency room in the region dedicated to treating children. Our board certified physicians and pediatric trained nurses are supported by a wide range of pediatric specialists.

A separate Rapid Medical Assessment (RMA) treatment area is also available for children with minor complaints as determined by our physicians and nurses. This means a quicker ER visit with less exposure to seriously ill or injured patients.

All of the Pediatric ER areas are cheerfully decorated and filled with kid-friendly activities. Even our medical equipment is built to better fit children and comes with special features like movie goggles for patients having an MRI.

For the convenience of our patients and their families, the Huntsville Hospital Pharmacy is available during certain hours to fill discharge prescriptions and deliver them to patients before they leave the hospital.
