No Adults Allowed; Pediatric Emergency Department Delivers Compassionate Care
Bon Secours St. Mary’s for Kids Emergency Room offers parents throughout Richmond the opportunity for compassionate care exclusively for their children.
St. Mary’s for Kids isn’t just the best choice – it’s the only choice. The area’s only dedicated pediatric emergency department, St. Mary’s for Kids has a separate entrance from the adult emergency room and 14 state-of-the-art exam rooms available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Dr. Frank Petruzella, MD, Department Medical Director, recently shared his thoughts on the advantages of a children’s-only emergency facility on Health Matters.
Physicians have three additional years of highly specialized pediatric training and are well-equipped to treat anything from fevers and flu to life-threatening injuries. And all of our doctors have been trained in large emergency room settings at various children’s hospitals, some of which are the best in the nation.
In addition to having highly trained and compassionate physicians, St. Mary’s for Kids also has a dedicated child life specialist whose job is to keep parents and patients informed throughout their stay.
