UVA's Emergency Department is one of only five Level 1 trauma centers in Virginia. Our experienced team delivers 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 kid-friendly lobby is separate from the adult emergency room lobby and stocked with books, toys, videos, an interactive play wall, 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.
