The Children's Emergency Center is located in Greenville Memorial Hospital. The Children’s Emergency Center provides a separate facility for children from birth to 18 years, enabling them to receive emergency care away from the sights and sounds of a typical adult emergency room. It is directed by a pediatric emergency medicine physician and staffed by pediatricians, pediatric nurses, and child life specialists. The Children's Emergency Center is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Upstate’s only dedicated Children’s Emergency Center treats approximately 23,000 children each year. Physicians are board-certified or double-boarded in emergency medicine, pediatric emergency medicine and/or pediatrics, and more than 30 pediatric subspecialists are available for consultation. If admitted, patients receive the highest-level pediatric care in the region at GHS Children’s Hospital, which includes a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
Everyone on staff approaches emergency care through the eyes of a child, and all are specially trained in pediatric care and sensitive to the needs of children and their families.
GHS Children's Emergency Center is located on the Greenville Memorial Medical Campus.
