UVA's Emergency Department is one of only five level-one trauma centers in Virginia. Our experienced team delivers comprehensive, coordinated emergency care for acutely ill and injured children, adolescents and young adults up to age 21.
A Comforting, Safe Environment
We prioritize your child's comfort and safety. Our quiet, kid-friendly waiting area is separate from the adult emergency room and stocked with books, toys, videos and other items to help ease a child's anxiety. We also have private screening rooms, separate from adult emergency patients.
Our pediatric emergency room has the most advanced diagnostic and treatment tools available, designed to fit children of all ages. We’re open 24/7.
