centered on your child
A trip to the emergency department can be stressful for anyone – especially for children or parents with a sick or injured child. All of our medical center locations offer 24 / 7 children’s emergency services that can deliver the expertise and special treatments your child needs. We will soothe and care for your child and we will listen to and address all of the questions and concerns you may have.
Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital
The children's emergency department at Hemby Children's Hospital is located in Charlotte, NC. As the first pediatric specialty emergency department of its kind in the region, our department has years of experience caring for children like yours. We are staffed by board-certified pediatric emergency doctors, nurses and child life specialists that will work together to ensure your child receives the proper physical and emotional care he or she may need.
Our state-of-the-art facility is designed with your child’s needs in mind. The emergency department has a soothing “under-the-sea” theme throughout with a virtual aquarium, televisions, DVD players and colorful wall murals in each exam room. Your child can watch television or play a DVD in our exam rooms while our child-friendly staff attends to their medical needs.
Critical care transport
If your child arrives at one of our emergency departments and it is determined that they need a more advanced form of care that is only available at another Novant Health location, we will provide transportation to where they need to go. Our critical care transportation team has extensive expertise in caring for children who require extra care and our ambulances are specially equipped with state-of-the-art technology for a safe transition from one location to another.
