When your child is sick or injured, it can be challenging to know where to take him or her for care. At any time your child has difficulty breathing, looks ill, has a possible head, neck or spine injury, coughing blood or lethargic, you should be seeing a doctor immediately.  Please visit one of our urgent care centers.

  • Persistent pain, cramps, or high fever
  • Infections, seizures, and severe dehydration

Quick Evaluation Procedures

Right from a child’s arrival to the ER reception room, we lose no time is lost while they are on the way to their evaluation. With a quick and prompt evaluation process, we ensure complete diagnosis before they can join back their families. 

Our trained staff reassures the children throughout the process to help them settle into a calming and stress-free environment. 

Most of the high-tech and advanced medicine we use helps control nausea and vomiting and can be administered even without the IV. Whether it is a fever, fracture, or pain, we focus on implementing measures that rapidly alleviate their discomfort.

 

Calm and Healing Environment

Our spaces for young patients inspire confidence, encourage interaction, and offer hope. The pediatric spaces built consider daylight, noise control, privacy, and positive distractions making patients and their families feel a sense of belonging and a more home-like atmosphere. We have interactive areas for siblings and flexible exam rooms that accommodate families. By ensuring a clean, calm, and breathable space for the child’s treatment, we also minimize the risks of any possible infections.
