Our teams are fully-trained, board-certified surgeons with additional fellowship training in pediatric surgery, meaning your child gets the best emergency trauma care available.
When receiving care at Phoenix Children's Hospital Pediatric Trauma Center, you can rest easy knowing you're getting child-specific trauma care. Children who receive treatment at a trauma center lower their risk of death by 25% compared to non-trauma centers, and children cared for at a pediatric trauma center have a lower mortality rate and shorter lengths of stay compared to children cared for at adult trauma centers. Why?
Because we're trained to meet the unique needs of children dealing with traumatic injuries and illnesses. We have designated staff for children, making sure they have 24/7 physician specialist coverage for their immediate needs. And our trauma center physicians, nurses and other staff are trained to serve the unique medical needs of children in an environment focused exclusively on children and their families.
