ER Exclusively for Kids

Steinbrenner Children’s Emergency and Trauma Center offers BayCare patients board-certified pediatric care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients and families have the privacy and comfort of 22 private rooms in family-friendly surroundings dedicated to kids. Learn more about our ER Exclusively for Kids.

In the event of a transfer, patients are expedited in a specialized pediatric ambulance or by air from any area hospital. The Steinbrenner Emergency and Trauma Center has dedicated trauma rooms with the latest critical care and imaging technology.

Each pediatric patient goes through a general checklist upon arrival:

  • Blood pressure
  • Temperature
  • Weight
  • Heart
  • Ears
  • Lungs

Child life specialists have studied normal child development, behavior and reactions in children who are in health care settings. A child life specialist is on staff 24/7 in the ER and will work closely with your child’s medical team to help families and children understand the testing and diagnosis process and how to cope with hospitalization. They provide emotional, developmental and recreational support.
