At one time or another, every family needs emergency medical services. And when your child is sick or injured, the closer the hospital is to home, the better. That’s why Covenant Children’s built the region’s only dedicated emergency center for children.
We’re open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and always staffed by physicians and registered nurses specially trained in pediatric emergency care. In addition, everything in our facility, from the equipment in patient rooms to the medical technology we use, is designed to meet the unique needs of children.
Pediatric Trauma Center
When children arrive at the emergency department who are severely ill or injured, they are treated at our Level II Pediatric Trauma Center. With 12 rooms and two trauma bays specially designed to accommodate families, the trauma center is equipped with the latest patient monitoring technology, so physicians and nurses are immediately aware of any change in a child’s condition.
Covenant Children's is verified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level II Children's Trauma Center and designated by the Texas Department of State Health Services as a Level II Trauma Center.
Covenant Children's was the first designated children's trauma center in Texas and is the only designated children's trauma center in the region. Additionally, Covenant Children's provides 24/7 specialty physician coverage. These pediatric specialties include: Trauma Surgery, Neurosurgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Anesthesia, and Intensive Care.
