Albany Medical Center Pediatric Emergency Department

The Pediatric Emergency Department at Albany Medical Center will be the only one of its kind in northeastern New York and western New England. The family-friendly, 70,500-square-foot facility will be located on Albany Med’s main campus and will provide a safe and special environment where children and teenagers will be tended to by experts in pediatric emergency medicine.

Features of the four-story Pediatric Emergency Department will include:

  • Triage area to immediately assess the severity of the illness or injury.
  • Fast-track unit for children and teens with less-serious conditions.
  • Observation unit for stays up to 23 hours.
  • Private rooms designed for the safety and comfort of children and parents.
  • Airborne Infectious Isolation (AII) rooms.
  • Full Trauma rooms with built-in X-Ray

Construction for this recently completed design began in the winter of 2017 and the facility is anticipated to be completed late in 2018.  The design is anticipated to receive a LEED Certified Rating.
