Specialized Emergency Services for Children

Hasbro Children's Hospital's emergency department is designated as a Level I trauma center, serving the needs of young trauma patients as well as children needing less acute care. The department is staffed twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week by specialists trained in pediatric emergency medicine and other pediatric subspecialties, including toxicology, pediatric emergency medicine and critical care.

Hasbro Children's Hospital is a verified Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center.

The 12,200-square-foot emergency department is staffed by eleven full-time physicians and sees more than 48,000 patients a year. It offers a dedicated room for orthopedics and sedation, three rooms specially designed for behavioral health, and several ancillary services, including an interpreter, social worker and transporter.

The Center for Pediatric Imaging and Sedation is located next to the emergency department and, in addition, a radiology suite is located within the emergency department. Both features enable us to provide our patients fast, easy access to radiology services.

The facility includes:

  • Fifteen individual treatment rooms
  • Four-bed observation unit
  • Two-patient critical care room
  • Dedicated diagnostic imaging capabilities

Our patients can contact the practice at any time for urgent care or sick visit advice.
