Health Care Professionals Leading the Way at the Children's Emergency Center
At the Children’s Emergency Center, the pediatricians are much more than doctors. Years of experience has taught them that the best medicine for children often involves an added touch of compassion and respect. That’s why they’re also hand holders, nose wipers and storytellers, ready to give your children the personal, kid-friendly attention they deserve. Our facility is specifically designed to provide a soothing, playful atmosphere so that your children feel as comfortable as possible. After all, we know that a trip to the doctor isn’t the most fun a kid can have, but we’ll do all we can to change that.
The Children’s Emergency Center physicians are supported by a team of qualified pediatric emergency nurses, respiratory therapists, nutritionists, pharmacists and other skilled health care professionals. These pediatric emergency specialists interact with all clinical departments, as well as surgical and medical sub-specialists, to provide the clinical care necessary for your critically ill or injured children as efficiently as possible. The team is fully trained and knowledgeable in the most advanced pediatric life support and resuscitation techniques available.
When your child is sick or hurting after hours, even a simple illness or injury can feel like an emergency. After 13 years of serving the children of North Central San Antonio and beyond, we’ve found that parents have great instincts. Follow them, and call us at (210) 297-4050 if you have any questions at all.
