The brand new Children’s Emergency Room at Florida Hospital Tampa brings pediatric emergency care closer to home for many Tampa families. Every detail of the Doc1stER℠ 4 Kids has been intentionally designed to improve the emergency room experience for our youngest patients.
To create a child-friendly environment, we have transformed our Doc1stER℠ 4 Kids into the deck of a pirate ship. Our patient rooms feature innovative technology intended to calm and distract children and their families while being treated.
Our Doc1stER℠ 4 Kids has implemented advanced medical equipment and procedures that are tailored to pediatric emergency care, ensuring that each child receives the safest medical attention possible. Every patient will see one of our board certified emergency physicians — specialists in pediatric care — at the beginning of the visit. This allows the physician and our specially trained staff to work quickly and get the diagnostic testing and treatment needed, often with innovative pain-free techniques.
Our state-of-the-art Children’s Emergency Room Features:
Patients in our Children’s Emergency Room will benefit from a new approach to emergency care where they will see a doctor first.
Our Children's Emergency Room has its own dedicated radiology suite that uses advanced technology to minimize the amount of radiation children are exposed to and produces clear imaging.
Parents often debate whether or not they should take their child to the emergency room. “Is my child really that sick or injured?” “Will it take too much time?” “Am I overreacting?” The physicians and staff in our Doc1stER℠ 4 Kids want parents to take comfort in knowing that their child’s health and safety is our top concern, as well.
