Bristol-Myers Squibb Pediatric Emergency Care Center at St. Mary

Bristol-Myers Squibb Pediatric Emergency Care Center at St. Mary

 

The"Bristol-Myers Squibb Pediatric Emergency Care Center at St. Mary Medical Center" is the only hospital in Bucks County with a dedicated 24/7 pediatric emergency care center, including a separate setting for pediatric triage. The pediatric emergency care center treats approximately 14,000 patients each year with the expectation of increasing to 17,000 patients this year. That number is up from 7,000 cases just five years ago, and the need for pediatric emergency care also is expected to grow rapidly in our community.

The new pediatric Emergency Department has expanded the center's capacity to 11 beds. A specially equipped pediatric resuscitation room, ambulance-entrance access, and separate reception areas for potentially infectious and noninfectious conditions. Pediatric emergency care at St. Mary is provided by specially trained physicians and nurses in a unique setting designed to reduce stress and meet the specific emergency care needs of children and their families.
