Emergency care for children
Accidents and illnesses can happen anytime. That's why it's comforting to know you have the full resources of a regional medical center in your own backyard. Our Emergency Department is open around the clock to provide immediate, high-quality care to your children, whenever you should need us.
Aurora BayCare Medical Center is staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians and nurses experienced in providing pediatric care. These are professionals who have received advanced training in handling all types of emergencies involving young people. Supporting them is a whole team of on-call specialists - including a toxicologist and pediatric surgeons - as well as nearby radiology, laboratory, and anesthesiology services.
To accommodate families with small children, we've also designated special pediatric rooms and a play area within our Emergency Department to make your visit as comfortable as possible.
Note to parents: Please take time to complete a "Consent for Treatment of a Minor" form for each child in your household and keep it on record at Aurora BayCare. This form allows our physicians to administer medical care promptly to your child if you cannot be reached. And remember, in the case of an emergency, always seek care from the closest Emergency Department or call 911.
