Pediatric Emergency Department

The pediatric emergency department at Stanford Medicine, located at 900 Quarry Road Extension, is the only emergency department in the area uniquely prepared for pediatric emergencies. Separate from the adult emergency department, our pediatric emergency department is a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center providing comprehensive 24-hour emergency care with direct access to world-class pediatric emergency specialists. With technology and innovative treatments designed with kids in mind, care from Stanford doctors and staff who are specially trained in caring for children, and an emphasis on preventing and avoiding pain in our patients, our pediatric emergency department provides an environment and atmosphere that is calming and nonthreatening to children.

Our team and facility are equipped to handle a wide range of medical problems—for example:

  • Infectious conditions such as colds, acute gastroenteritis, croup, and bronchiolitis.
  • Chronic, recurrent illnesses such as asthma, sickle cell disease, cancer, hemophilia, AIDS or seizures.
  • Acute traumatic injuries.
  • Critical illnesses.

Children who require additional care can be admitted to Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, just down the hall from our emergency department. Since Packard Children's provides high-level care in all pediatric specialties, there is no need to transfer the child to another hospital.
