The Emergency Department staff at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan provides care at our main facility in Detroit, as well as our satellite ED in Troy, MI. We enjoy brand new, state-of-the-art ED facilities at both locations, which were designed using LEAN methodology. In Detroit, our ED is part of a new critical care tower that houses new operative suites, imaging department and a new 2-floor PICU and NICU.
This ED provides care for approximately 100,000 sick and injured children each year. These patients are cared for in a 56-bed ED, with a 4-bed resuscitation bay and a separate 6-bed mental health unit. The ED is divided into pods, where care teams can efficiently provide safe, high-quality care.
Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) fellows exclusively work in the area of our ED that cares for the highest acuity medical, surgical and trauma patients. They are always supervised by fellowship trained PEM physicians and have the opportunity to clinically collaborate with other PEM physicians, pediatricians and Advanced Practice Providers.
