Vanderbilt Children's Emergency Medicine
Call 911 if your child is experiencing a life-threatening medical situation
The Emergency Department at Children's Hospital is here when your child faces a routine mishap or something far more serious. Our goal is to always provide the region's best emergency care as quickly as possible, any time of day or night. Our Pediatric Emergency Medicine physicians have the highly specialized skills and knowledge required to respond to any pediatric emergency.
We also offer 24-hour pediatric emergency services at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center. Specially trained doctors are equipped to handle most pediatric emergencies.
Our After-Hours Clinics offer convenient walk-in care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries that do not require emergency care.
For a poison emergency, call the Poison Hotline at (800) 222-1222. All calls are free. Our board-certified toxicologists supervise the Tennessee Poison Center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The Tennessee Department of Health and the American Association of Poison Control Centers have certified us as the statewide poison control center.
