Pediatric Emergency Care

The Emergency Department (ED) at the Children's Hospital of Michigan DMC is an American College of Surgeons certified level one pediatric trauma center. We are also a regional burn and poison control center.  From fevers and flu to life-threatening conditions, the Emergency Department at the Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit and the Children's Hospital of Michigan Specialty Center Troy cares for approximately 90,000 patients per year.

chmemergencyentrance (1)The ED recently expanded and moved to the ground floor of the hospital’s critical care tower. The Emergency Department entrance is located just north of the main Children's Hospital of Michigan, off of Mack Ave. and I-75 at Beaubien Blvd. Free valet parking for the Emergency Department patients/families is available at the entrance.

The Emergency Department was built with efficiency in mind with 52 ED treatment rooms, 4 Trauma Bays and 6 Behavioral Health rooms.  All processes and protocols were developed using lean methodology to improve quality and efficiency.  The ED is structured into pods, where care teams work together to provide seamless care.

The ED is staffed by fellowship trained pediatric emergency physicians, pediatricians and nurse practitioners.  The pediatric emergency medicine fellowship program, one of the largest in the country, attracts exceptional candidates from all over the United States. 

When pediatric patients need emergency transport, a dedicated PANDA One intensive care transport team, staffed by specially trained registered nurses and respiratory therapists, provide timely response, 24 hours a day, to transport critically ill infants to the Children’s Hospital of Michigan from hospitals all across the state. Transport options include two dedicated ground ambulances, as well as by helicopter and fixed wing air for transferring hospitals that are located at further distances.

Emergency Care has also been expanded with the opening of the Children's Hospital of Michigan-Troy. Our Troy location is also staffed by our pediatric emergency medicine physicians and nurse practitioners with 9 treatment rooms to care for our patients.
