Convenient and Family Friendly
At CHOC Children’s, we understand that life with kids can be hectic and strive to make our services convenient for families. Located off the 5 and 22 freeways, the Emergency Department provides a streamlined process for moving children through the triage process quickly and efficiently.
The Emergency Department features 31 treatment rooms, including 14 rapid evaluation and discharge exam rooms and three triage suites. Each exam room is designed to be spacious and accommodate strollers and other children who often accompany their siblings on emergency visits to the hospital.
In addition to providing families the room and speedy service they need, the Emergency Department provides many of the services patients may need without having to leave the unit. Most blood draws and tests can be done at the patient’s bedside, and X-ray equipment is available in the unit as well. Should a child need an MRI, CT scan or surgery, each of these services is located within steps of the Emergency Department for the convenience of our families and in order to provide our patients the fastest service possible.
