Pediatric Emergency Medicine


The Pediatric Emergency Department at Cooper University Hospital is dedicated to the care of ill and injured children in South Jersey. 

An eight-bed dedicated Pediatric Emergency Department with a separate pediatric waiting area is staffed by physicians board certified in Pediatric Emergency Medicine and/or Pediatrics. The entire Pediatric Emergency Department team is specifically trained to meet the unique needs of children and their families during a medical emergency. Child life specialists are also available and employ special techniques to guide children through their emergency department visit.

As part of the Cooper Children’s Regional Hospital, we have access to pediatric specialists who are experts in all major pediatric subspecialties, including pediatric surgery and pediatric trauma.
