Accidents happen and children get sick all the time, usually on the weekends or in the middle of the night. When that happens, turn to Chester County Hospital, where pediatricians from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are available in the Emergency Department to provide child-friendly care for your little one.
Chester County Hospital's long-standing affiliation with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) also provides our smallest patients:
- The only dedicated pediatric unit in Chester County staffed by CHOP Pediatricians.
- The only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) -- the highest level in Chester County -- staffed by CHOP Neonatologists.
Small Things Make a Big Difference
Emergency hospital visits can be frightening for children and parents alike. In our Emergency Department, we are uniquely prepared for the special needs of children and families, thanks to our affiliation with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, a world leader in pediatric and neonatal medicine. Our innovative program combines the extensive resources of CHOP with the caring, experienced staff and excellent facilities of Chester County Hospital.
Child-Friendly Emergency Department
Within our Emergency Department, you'll find pediatric-sized equipment, instruments and medical supplies -- including happy diversions for children including games, tablets and a collection of family-favorite DVDs.
The CHOP pediatricians who work in our hospital's inpatient Pediatrics Unit attend to your child's immediate needs in our Emergency Department, and provide continuity of care for children who may need to be admitted for observation or treatment. Your CHOP inpatient pediatrician will also communicate seamlessly with your child's own primary care physician.
Chester County Hospital's Emergency Medicine physicians and health care providers also have the expertise to care for people of all ages, including infants and children. Their care is available in the Emergency Department 24 hours-a-day, 365 days-a-year.
