Advanced Pediatric Emergency Services Close to Home

ped ed

Greenwich Hospital’s Emergency Department has a child-friendly waiting room designated exclusively for pediatric patients.


Families who bring their children to Greenwich Hospital's Emergency Department now have access to the most advanced pediatric emergency services in the region.

Greenwich has teamed up with pediatric emergency medicine physicians at Yale New Haven Children's Hospital, which was ranked as the top children's hospital in Connecticut by U.S. News & World Report. Children comprise about a quarter of the 40,000 visits made to Greenwich Hospital's Emergency Department each year.

The pediatric emergency medicine physicians from Yale New Haven Children's Hospital will be concentrating their coverage at Greenwich Hospital from 4 pm - 8 am.

"This covers busy pediatric volumes in the evening and overnight once the pediatrician offices are closed and helps cover the admitted patients on our pediatric floor," said Christopher Davison, MD, the Emergency Department's medical director. The hospital has pediatricians during the day who can be called to the Emergency Department when the pediatric emergency medicine physicians are not in-house.

"Parents have peace of mind with the added level of support and expertise that pediatric emergency medicine specialists bring to Greenwich Hospital," said Karen Santucci, MD, medical director of Yale New Haven Children's Hospital Emergency Department.
