Open daily from noon to midnight, Montefiore Nyack Hospital’s Pediatric Emergency Department is staffed by board-certified pediatric emergency medicine physicians and nurses experienced in pediatric emergency medicine, and supported by inpatient hospital pediatricians as well as a dedicated team of healthcare professionals who specialize in pediatric care. Our young patients receive the prompt attention they need in an environment that is sensitive to their unique medical and emotional needs. The focus is entirely on providing our pediatric patients with high-quality, evidence-based care.
Our Pediatric Emergency Department is comprised of eight private treatment rooms separate from the adult section. Designed to be a comforting space for pediatric patients and their families, the doctors and nurses’ station is centrally located for better visibility and communication. Each room is decorated with a colorful piece of children’s themed artwork specially created by local elementary and high school students from across Rockland County to provide a calming focal point for children during their stay.
If hospitalization is necessary, the Pediatric Emergency Department staff includes hospitalists, pediatricians who specialize in the care and needs of hospitalized children. If pediatric subspecialty support is needed, our medical team works with our colleagues at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore in the Bronx which is nationally renowned for its clinical excellence, innovative research and commitment to training the next generation of pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists.
