Pediatric Emergency  Services

Take a Tour! 


The waiting room is child-friendly with toys and televisions to distract patients and family members while they wait.

Designed with children in mind, the waiting area is a learning environment as well.

The waiting room is visually separate from the main waiting area to keep children separate from the general ED population.

The unit is staffed by a team of nurses from both the Emergency Department and the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital.
 
A quiet, comforting environment for children to receive care with all of the resources of MMC right there.

Medical Director, Nathan Mick, MD, is specially trained in Pediatric Emergency Medicine.

The Maine Medical Center Emergency Department offers specialized care in a unique environment designed for infants and children. The year 2009 ushered in a new era of Pediatric Emergency Services at the Bramhall campus with the opening of it's state of the art 10-bed Pediatric Emergency Department. This new unit provides additional space to care for children with the goal of making your child's visit prompt and efficient.

Along with the 10-bed unit, a separate, child-friendly waiting room  was constructed with toys and televisions for distraction. The waiting room is visually separate from the main waiting area of the Emergency Department to shelter children from the general ED population. 

Rooms in the Pediatric ED are specially designed with the comforts of children and their parents in mind.  Each room is equipped with LCD televisions with VCRs for patient distraction.  The unit is separate but contiguous with the main Emergency Department, which offers a quiet, comforting environment for children to receive care while keeping all the resources of Maine Medical Center close at hand. 

The unit is staffed by a team of dedicated Emergency Department Nurses.  There is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week attending coverage by physicians board-certified in Emergency Medicine under the direction of a medical director with sub-specialty training in Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Dr. Nathan Mick. Full Pediatric sub-specialty support is available so your child will receive the best care, whether they are being seen for a minor injury or a major medical condition.
