Pediatric Emergency Department

Pediatric Emergency Department

Family-Centered Care, Everyday

Good Samaritan Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), has established dedicated pediatric services in its Emergency Department (ED). Pediatric emergency medicine specialists are now available onsite to treat children from birth to age 21.

Emergency Department highlights include:

  • Modern treatment rooms and trauma rooms with built-in X-ray machines
  • Two in-unit radiology rooms
  • Special orthopedic room
  • State-of-the-art heart monitoring system
  • Psychiatric treatment room
  • Private family room

Young patients of the new Pediatric Emergency Department (ED) will benefit from Good Samaritan Hospital’s WMCHealth affiliation with the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital (MFCH), the Hudson Valley’s only acute-care children’s hospital.  The most seriously ill or injured children in need of specialized care and procedures can be transferred seamlessly to Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital for treatment that is not available anywhere else in the Hudson Valley.

The new ED was made possible by the addition of two board certified pediatric physicians and a pediatric nurse practitioner to the medical staff.  The Pediatric ED team has the skill and experience to help children remain calm, brave and safe during their visit.
