Now located in Children's Tower: 1001 E. Marshall St. 

Conveniently located two turns off Interstate-95, our Children's Emergency Department is the only in the region to specialize in caring just for kids. We're also home to the region's only Level 1 pediatric trauma center and are a regional referral source for other hospitals. With a helipad on the roof and free, convenient valet parking at the Children's Emergency entrance, care has never been more convenient.

Focused on kids and families 

We understand going to the emergency room can be scary. Our goal is to provide easy, convenient access to the best care right away. Whether it’s a sports injury, health scare in the middle of the night or major trauma, our team is prepared to care for your child 24/7, 365. Avoid a transfer by always choosing CHoR first. When your child needs immediate or life-saving care, we provide not only emergency treatment to stabilize them, but also a range of pediatric subspecialties from neurosciences to orthopaedics and more to take care of all their needs.
