Pediatric Trauma Center

As the only accredited pediatric trauma center in the State of Maryland, the Division of Emergency Medicine works with Maryland’s Emergency Medical Services to receive emergency trauma and other cases from Cumberland to the Eastern Shore. We also treat pediatric trauma cases from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware, Washington, D.C., and Virginia, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  If necessary the peds trauma and adult ED share trauma capacity to reduce anxiety resulting from separation during stressful times.

Management of multi-system illness and trauma is provided through the Pediatric Emergency Department and the 40-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), which is staffed by pediatric surgeons  and pediatric anesthesiology and critical care medicine specialists. 

Members of the Pediatric Trauma Team continue to be very active in educational activities in the region providing instructors for the Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses (ATCN) program as well as the ATLS® program.
