Who we are
The Hospital for Sick Children’s Division of Paediatric Emergency Medicine offers tertiary and quaternary level emergency and level 1 trauma services to the paediatric population of central Ontario and particularly the Greater Toronto Area. We also offer primary and secondary level services to our local population of downtown Toronto (traditionally defined by the old city of Toronto postal codes but the boundaries are under discussion with our regional partners).
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. All services, including laboratory and the full range of diagnostics relevant to ED care, are available 24 hours a day.
It takes a very dedicated and unique team to provide the quality of care and compassion each of our patients deserve, and we are proud of our outstanding team of health-care professionals.
