About the Children's Emergency Center

The Children's Emergency Center is a certified Level I pediatric trauma center, providing the highest level of trauma care available. As one of only two Level I pediatric trauma centers caring for children in the Texas Gulf Coast region, as well as the only verified burn center in the city, Children's Memorial Hermann brings together a world-class team of clinicians, researchers and educators armed with the latest in research and technology to deliver comprehensive, life-saving services and 24-hour care to children in Houston and the surrounding areas.

Thirteen beds are dedicated to pediatrics, and the EC has separate pediatric waiting and triage areas. Beautifully decorated to match the child-friendly motif throughout the hospital, the EC at Children's Memorial Hermann features whimsical nature characters that help make children feel at ease.

Locations

Texas Medical Center

The Trauma and Emergency Center at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center is equipped to meet the needs of adult and pediatric patients with conditions ranging from minor injuries and illnesses to major trauma. Our EC is the only certified Level I trauma center in the Texas Medical Center able to admit patients of all ages to be cared for at the same facility. This provides a unique advantage for families, especially in trauma situations when multiple family members are admitted to the EC, because we have the ability to care for the entire family unit under one roof.
