Pediatric Emergency now within TMC for Children

The Tucson Medical Center Pediatric Emergency Department has relocated within TMC for Children.

Patients and loved ones will gain entry to the Pediatric ED by going through the main TMC for Children entrance on the hospital’s south side.

The layout and design of the 14-bed Pediatric ED is structured in a horseshoe shape to enable staff to monitor patients more easily, spend more time with patients and promote better teamwork.

In addition, the new location is in close proximity to other TMC for Children services, which allows TMC to better integrate comprehensive children’s services.

“With all services in the same area, it will allow for more timely collaboration with pediatric specialists and better coordination of care for our youngest community members,” said Dr. Moira Richards, the medical director of TMC for Children.

The Pediatric ED also offers online appointment scheduling. Visit our home page to find out more.
