Our Services

Emergency Care for Children

We provide emergency care for children at locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

If your child is in need of emergency or urgent medical care, pediatric emergency medicine experts are available at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Around-the-clock emergency care for children is available at the KiDS Emergency Department, Emergency Department at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, and NYU Langone Health—Cobble Hill. Our medical teams, which include doctors and nurses who specialize in pediatric emergency care, treat everything from minor injuries and illnesses to complex medical conditions.

When to Seek Emergency Care

If your child is experiencing a life-threatening situation, such as having trouble breathing, uncontrolled bleeding, or loss of consciousness, call 911 so your child can receive immediate medical attention from paramedics.

You should bring your child directly to the emergency department if he or she experiences one of the following:

  • fever greater than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit in infants less than 2 months of age, or if you are concerned based on your baby’s appearance or activity
  • poisoning from accidentally ingesting medicine, chemicals, or household products
  • seizure
  • swallowed a foreign object
  • broken bone
  • severe burn

If you are unsure whether to bring your child to the emergency department, call your pediatrician for advice.

Your Child’s Emergency Care Visit

When you arrive at the emergency department, your child is evaluated immediately by a member of our emergency medical team. Please let us know right away if your child is in pain or has allergies, especially to medicine. We want to hear what is going on with your child, and are committed to listening to your concerns and answering your questions.

Because we know the emergency department can be intimidating for a child, we also provide child life services at some locations to help ease any stress your child is experiencing. If your child needs to visit a pediatric specialist for follow-up care, we can refer you to one of the more than 400 Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital doctors who represent more than 35 pediatric specialties.

Urgent Care for Children

Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital also provides urgent care for illnesses or injuries that are not medical emergencies but require immediate attention. Many colds, ear infections, and stomach bugs fall into this category. Urgent care for general medical conditions is available at NYU Langone at Trinity.

For children ages 5 and older, you can also schedule a video visit with a care provider through our Virtual Urgent Care service.

At Samuels Orthopedic Immediate Care Center, our doctors specialize in caring for non-emergency injuries to the hands, feet, arms, or legs, such as sprain or fracture.
