Sanford Children’s Emergency Medicine team specializes in the care of children and teens who are acutely ill or injured. A pediatric emergency physician is trained to care for a wide range of problems that require immediate medical help. These problems are often serious and may be life-threatening. Children have access to Sanford Children's Hospital and our pediatric intensive care unit for continued care. They also work closely with pediatric physicians in more than 70 specialties and services.
