Pediatric Emergency Room in Treasure Coast

Accidents happen — and especially with children. When they do occur, you want the best possible pediatric emergency care for your child. You can trust the pediatric experts at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center to care for your children.


Our pediatric ER is the first and only one of its kind on the Treasure Coast. Open 24/7, the pediatric emergency room is separate from the primary ER and is solely dedicated to treating the emergency healthcare needs of infants, children and teenagers. Since a visit to the ER can be a scary concept for children, our medical staff creates a calm, nurturing environment for injured and sick children with child-friendly décor and furniture, colorful artwork and an aquarium. We understand children are different and have tailored our bedside manner to meet their needs.

We are the first and only emergency room in the Treasure Coast area to offer:

  • Pediatric triage
  • Pediatric-friendly treatment rooms
  • Board-certified emergency physicians trained in pediatrics
  • Child-sized equipment, gowns, IVs, airway management tools and other medical necessities

When your child needs emergency care, you can count on our pediatric specialists to provide for their physical and emotional needs.
