Pediatric Emergency Services

Maine Medical Center Emergency Department features the state‘s only Pediatric Emergency Department - a unique 10-bed unit that provides additional space to care specifically for children.

Full Pediatric sub-specialty support and coordinated care are available through The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. Under the direction of Dr. Nathan Mick, trained in Pediatric Emergency Medicine, the goal of this unique environment is to make your child's visit prompt and efficient while receiving the best possible care.

The pediatric waiting room is a separate child-friendly waiting room in the Emergency Department to shelter children from the general ED population. Designed with kids in mind, the area has games, toys and televisions which provide distractions for a more comfortable visit. Rooms in the Pediatric ED are also specially designed with the comforts of children and their parents in mind. While the unit is separate and offers a quiet, comforting environment for children to receive care, it is still attached to the main Emergency Department keeping all the resources of Maine Medical Center close at hand.
