Pediatric Care

  • or

Pediatric patients receive a warm welcome at Hunterdon Medical Center’s emergency room. Hunterdon Medical Center treats approximately 7,500 children a year, providing outstanding timely care delivered by a skilled clinical team that includes board-certified emergency medicine physicians and specially trained physician assistants and nurses. Pediatric neonatologists are available for consult 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Care and compassion are essential in pediatric emergency medicine, and the Hunterdon Medical Center recognizes this. Our motto is to treat each patient as if he or she were a member of our own family.

The ER physicians and nurses explain to parents everything they need to know about their child’s condition and care. More importantly, they communicate the same information to the child in simple language that he or she can understand.

With regard to pediatric ER services, Hunterdon Medical Center recognizes that we need to treat the whole family. Parents may feel the situation surrounding their child is out of their control, and we purposely strive to make every member of the family feel more secure and comforted during this potentially emotionally stressful time.

If you are experiencing an emergency, call 9-1-1.
