Emergency Medicine

Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) in the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University


Our primary mission is to provide children in our community with timely, high quality and cost efficient pediatric emergency and urgent care services, regardless of their ability to pay.

The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine staffs the emergency departments of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) at both the Egleston and Hughes Spalding locations. Children's at Egleston is located across the street from Emory University. It is a tertiary/ quartenary care facility which serves as Georgia's only level 1 pediatric trauma facility and ECMO referral center that caters to over 70,000 emergency department visits per year. CHOA at Hughes Spalding is a community hospital that receives close to 60,000 visits to its emergency department and is located in downtown Atlanta, across the street from Grady Memorial Hospital. These two facilities serve as the main sites for the education and training of residents and medical students from Emory University School of Medicine and Morehouse School of Medicine.

Aside from emergency care, our physicians also staff a dedicated sedation service 5 days/week. This service is a joint venture of the Divisions of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine and Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Service lines supported include radiology, surgery and oncology at the AFLAC cancer center.

Our physicians are active on all of the major hospital and university committees such as the Medical Executive, Peer Review, Ethics and Clinical Research committees.

We appreciate your interest in our division,
