Emergency Care Just for Kids


As a parent, you want the best care for your child. Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children has provided compassionate care to the children, teenagers and young adults of Central Florida for nearly 30 years. The Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children Emergency Room at Dr. P. Phillips Hospital extends that care with a dedicated pediatric emergency room designed specifically for children and families. With a separate waiting room and treatment area apart from adult emergencies, your child will be seen by a clinical team trained to provide child-sensitive care.

For children with critical needs, our pediatric acute care transport unit is specially equipped with lifesaving technology to safely transport children to Central Florida’s only Level One Trauma Center at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.

If you, or someone you know, are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or dial 9-1-1 immediately.

The online scheduling tool is intended for conditions that are non life-or limb-threatening.
