Pediatric-ready specialized emergency care for kids .
The ER can be a scary place for kids. That’s why the Pediatric ER at Chippenham Hospital is separate from the main emergency room in an environment designed to comfort and care for children. We don’t just provide adult medicine to kids, we provide specialized care just for children.
Our pediatric ER is staffed around-the-clock with board certified, pediatric emergency medicine physicians, in a cheerful space designed just for kids. More parents in Richmond trust us to care for their children in emergencies.
If your child is experiencing an emergency, always call 911 first.
We understand how important the parent-child relationship is, which is why our physicians are committed to working with you to develop a treatment plan. We share all test results and treatment plans so you can make informed decisions about what's best for your child.
