Childhood Emergencies

It's the middle of the night, and you’re in a panic! Your daughter’s temperature has now climbed to 103 degrees, and her breathing is strained. It’s no longer a wait and see situation – you’re taking her to the emergency room.

For families in Burlington County, this means the Pediatric Pavilion at Virtua Memorial in Mount Holly – ready 24 hours a day to help sick children get better. “Here, children receive specialized pediatric care from the moment they arrive,” says Samir Doshi, MD, assistant chief of pediatrics at Virtua Memorial. “If a child needs to be admitted to the hospital, the same highly experienced pediatricians continue to care for the child throughout a hospital stay.”

The private inpatient rooms even offer space for parents to spend the night.

The pavilion is staffed with CHOP at Virtua pediatricians and Virtua pediatric nurses, and it is equipped with the latest technology. Its family-focused design includes a separate pediatric emergency waiting area, a playroom for patients and siblings, and a Ronald McDonald family area.

Hopefully, your child will never need to visit. But when parental instincts sound the alarm, CHOP at Virtua pediatricians are ready day and night at the Virtua Memorial Pediatric Pavilion.
