Pediatric Emergency Department

Emergencies can strike at any hour. Fortunately, The Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week with staff who are specially trained in caring for children, using equipment that is specially designed for a child’s smaller anatomy.

Designed Just For Kids

Taking your child to the emergency room is stressful, so we’ve gone to great lengths to make our facilities as child-friendly as possible, with a separate waiting area just for kids and their parents and 12 private, brightly decorated rooms to help your child feel as calm and comfortable as possible.

Because children’s medical needs are vastly different from those of adults, we offer advanced equipment especially designed for diagnosing and treating medical emergencies in kids, from infants as small as 6 pounds to adolescents up to 18 years of age. To minimize your wait time, lab tests and X-rays are offered inside the Pediatric Emergency Department.

Equipped to handle a wide range of medical problems, our team is made up of surgeons, physicians, nurses, social workers and rehabilitation therapists who have specialized training and expertise in caring for children. Patients requiring additional care beyond the Emergency Room can be admitted to The Children’s Hospital, just down the hallwall. Sacred Heart provides children’s medical care across 28 pediatric subspecialties.

Regional Neonatal & Pediatric Transport Services

As Northwest Florida’s only pediatric trauma referral center, Sacred Heart Hospital offers medical transportation services – including both ground and air transportation – to bring prematurely born, critically ill and injured babies and children to The Children’s Hospital. Learn more.

Where to Go

The Pediatric Emergency Room is located not inside The Children's Hospital, but adjacent to the adult Emergency Room & Trauma Center on the Sacred Heart Pensacola Campus. Please follow the signs to the Emergency Room, and park in the lot adjacent to the building. For further wayfinding, please see our detailed campus map here.

What to Bring With You

To make your trip to the Pediatric Emergency Room is as quick and stress-free as possible, parents are asked to bring the following items:

  • Your child's immunization history
  • Your pediatrician’s phone number
  • Information about any conditions or chronic illnesses your child may have
  • (If available) X-rays or lab test results from other hospitals or clinics relating to your child's current illness
