Pediatric ER in Pensacola

At West Florida Healthcare, we realize that superheroes deserve super care, which is why we have opened an emergency room just for kids. Our pediatric ER team includes a team of board-certified pediatricians, nurses and hospitalists that care for children in a comfortable, reassuring environment.

The pediatric ER is a separate emergency room that is dedicated solely to treating the emergency health care needs of infants, children and adolescents. We try to keep ER wait times as low as possible by streamlining the fast track process so your child won’t be in pain for longer than absolutely necessary.

In addition to board-certified pediatricians, we offer:

  • Pediatric triage
  • Pediatric-friendly rooms
  • Pediatric-specific beds
  • Specially trained emergency staff

“Children need specialized care, especially during an emergency,” said Eric Schuck, M.D., Medical Director of Pediatric Emergency Services. “The continuity of care makes the difference and highlights our dedication to delivering the high-quality, compassionate care you expect from West Florida Healthcare.”
