Let’s face it; no one goes to the emergency department because they are having a good day. But for a child, a trip to the emergency department can make a bad day even worse. That’s where the Children’s Emergency Department comes in. We know that it can be scary. That’s why we’ve created a place just for kids.
A non-threatening, comfortable environment with a cheerful atmosphere, bright murals, children’s wall-art and child-sized furnishings. All this and a staff of doctors, nurses and support staff who know how to treat kids like kids, not little adults.
Specifically designed to meet the emergency care needs of children, the Children’s Emergency Department was the first freestanding facility of its kind in North Carolina and the only dedicated Children’s Emergency Department in Wake County, caring for thousands of pediatric patients every year.
