At Nicklaus Children's, we know that a child's needs are different from adults. To ensure that your child is seen by a pediatric specialist when it is most needed, the Emergency Department has a team of board-certified, fellowship trained, and board-eligible attending pediatric specialists and subspecialties on call, 24 hours a day. Should your child require advanced care, Nicklaus Children's Hospital has a full spectrum of pediatric subspeciality physicians to collaborate in your child’s care.

The Nicklaus Children's Hospital Emergency Department is proud to be home to the Miguel "Mike" B. Fernandez Family Pediatric Trauma Center, the only freestanding Level III pediatric trauma center in Florida. An adjoining helipad enhances the facility’s ability to handle incoming traumas, as well as transfers from other hospitals.
