TMC Pediatric Emergency Department Returns Home Oct. 2

On Oct. 2, the TMC Pediatric Emergency Department will return to its original location near regular Emergency – where it first opened on Dec. 1, 2001.  The department was originally moved to make way for construction of the new TMC Orthopaedic and Surgical Tower. Over the last several months, crews have taken the opportunity to give the department a face-lift, adding new flooring and paint.

The newly reopened department will have a dedicated arrival desk for children. There, a registration associate will ask for their name, date-of-birth and chief complaint. A pediatric nurse will be sitting in that area also to monitor the lobby and visualize children arriving.  After check in, patients will be taken to the triage area.

As always, 15 beds are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with practitioners trained in pediatric and emergency medicine.
