Highlights of the pediatric care center include: 

  • Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week 
  • Child-friendly setting designed specifically for children and teens, separate from the adult emergency department 
  • 14 patient beds providing emergency, short-stay inpatient and observation care

“Our new pediatric care center makes it easier than ever for families and children to receive excellent care when they need it, in a special space designed just for them,” says Sharon Kurfuerst, system chief operating officer at ChristianaCare and president of Union Hospital. “The center will care for the special needs of pediatric patients, making it convenient for them to receive dedicated, expert resources for hospital-based, non-trauma emergency and inpatient care all in one location.”
