The Division of Paediatric Emergency Medicine at The Hospital for Sick Children offers tertiary and quaternary level emergency, and Level 1 trauma services to the paediatric population of central Ontario, specifically the Greater Toronto Area. We also offer primary and secondary level services to our local population of downtown Toronto.

Our services range from assessment and treatment of “walk-in” patients, to resuscitation of a severe trauma patient, to assessment and stabilization of the child with a chronic condition prior to admission. Patient care needs may be any combination of medical, surgical, psychiatric or social in nature. Services are provided by a multidisciplinary team and include care by ED paediatricians or subspecialist paediatric emergentologists, subspecialty consultation, primary care and urgent follow-up as required. All services, including laboratory and the full range of diagnostics relevant to ED care, are available 24 hours a day.

In addition we also are the training site for a large number of medical trainees (over 250 last year); from medical students to fifth year emergency medicine residents, who rotate through the ED to receive their educational experience in paediatrics and paediatric emergency medicine. In addition we also have a large fellowship program in paediatric emergency medicine. The ED continues to expand clinical research in the management of paediatric acute illnesses.
