Pediatric emergency care, close to home
Studer Family Children's Hospital Pediatric Emergency Room at Nine Mile Road delivers 24/7 emergency care for kids with serious and life-threatening injuries and illnesses.
Getting the emergency care your family needs, when you need it, just got easier. At Nine Mile Road, we've opened a new kind of emergency room. Our new freestanding emergency room is in a separate building — no navigating a hospital campus — but with the same high-quality and immediate care you've come to expect.
We listen to quickly understand your child's health needs. Then, we provide care that's right for your child and your family. Our board-certified emergency care doctors and care teams are specially trained to care for kids and deliver advanced life-saving services. Our pediatric ER was designed with children and families in mind. Colorful waiting areas and exam rooms help put your child at ease, and we use specially designed equipment made just for children. From the moment you walk through the door, we deliver compassionate care to help your family through an emergency.
Then, we deliver a personalized care plan and connect the dots to any follow-up care, including to the pediatric specialists at Studer Family Children’s Hospital, Northwest Florida's only children's hospital.
Plus, our Emergency Room at Nine Mile Road offers comprehensive care for the whole family, so both kids and adults can get the care you need in one convenient location.
Caring for sudden, serious illness and injuries in children
Getting colds, bumps and bruises are all part of being a kid. When an illness becomes more severe or your child has a major injury, it may be time to take your child to the ER. Getting the emergency care your child needs when they need it is an important decision. Symptoms and signs that your child needs emergency care include:
- Trouble breathing
- Blue face and lips, or pale coloring
- Chest pain
- Major injury or broken bone
- Severe allergic reaction
- Severe vomiting or diarrhea
- High fever
- Animal bite
- Other serious illness or injury
If your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or call 911. Signs or symptoms of an acute emergency in children may include: severe vomiting or diarrhea, blue face and lips or pale coloring, high fever, chest pain, seizure, trouble breathing, major injury or broken bone, severe allergic reaction, and animal bites.
