The Children’s Emergency Department at Orange Regional Medical Center provides emergency care to ill and injured children (up to the age of 18), 24 hours a day. Separate and secure from our adult treatment area, the Children’s Emergency Department allows our younger patients (and their families) to be cared for by physicians and staff specially-trained in Pediatric medicine in a safe and comfortable environment.
Our newly constructed 3,000 square foot Children’s Emergency Room offers child-specific private treatment rooms, a triage area, and a dedicated nurses station. Each room is equipped appropriately to treat your child and is uniquely enhanced with beautifully hand-painted murals and custom artwork that support a healing environment and help to ease fears. We also offer flat screen televisions to help divert our patients from their illness or injury.
