Latest News

We know that patients, especially children, heal better and faster when they are treated near their family and caregivers. Our board-certified ER physicians use Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital evidence-based standards of care for pediatric emergency medicine at:

  • Florida Hospital Carrollwood
  • Florida Hospital North Pinellas
  • Florida Hospital Palm Harbor Emergency Room
  • Florida Hospital Tampa
  • Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel
  • Florida Hospital Zephyrhills

If a child requires a higher level of care beyond the ER, they will be transferred to Florida Hospital Tampa — with 24/7, onsite access to All Children’s Specialty Physicians — or to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, depending on the level of acuity or location.

Now you can access the renowned All Children’s Specialty Physicians at Florida Hospital Tampa. This specialty care includes:

  • Cardiology
  • Critical care
  • General pediatric surgery
  • Hematology/Oncology
  • Hospital medicine
  • Neonatology
  • Pulmonology

At Florida Hospital Tampa, our pediatric medical units include a fully dedicated pediatric emergency room, Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and an inpatient pediatric unit. 

A State-of-the-Art, Child-Friendly Emergency Department

Florida Hospital is proud to offer families a new concept in emergency department (ED) services, one that is scare-free and child-sized. Our waiting area is filled with toys and movies to keep children occupied while they wait for treatment. And once in our treatment rooms, they will find familiar and playful images dancing around the room.

 Fun-filled waiting areas keep children occupied while they wait for treatment.

Most pediatric treatment rooms use Philips Ambient Experience Technology to help calm patients with dim, colorful lighting, and playful projections on the wall. Patients and their families are able to control the scene and the lighting in each room, providing a sense of control and reducing anxiety during a potentially stressful time.

Every parent is faced with the decision of whether to take their child to the ER. It can be difficult to know exactly when a trip to the ER is necessary or if you should wait to see your pediatrician. Here are the signs and symptoms of when you should take your child to the ER.
