Accidents and Emergencies: what makes us different

A unique environment

  • Our department is dedicated exclusively to providing emergency care in children. Every year, we treat more than 121,000 pediatric emergencies
  • In addition to the support of all of the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital's specialists, we are very aware that Pediatric Emergency Medicine is very different from the adult equivalent. A child is not a miniature adult, and the family must also be included in the entire process.
  • Our specialists are training to combine the best medical care with empathy toward the patient and their family. This is especially necessary in an emergency, where communication also plays a fundamental role.

Our professionals

  • Our professionals are trained to be experts in pediatric emergencies. They are not merely duty doctors, but pediatricians trained to practice exclusively as such. 
  • We have duty specialists in all specialties, who can be contacted for any emergency requiring intervention.
