Bellevue Hospital Center Pediatric Emergency Service

The Pediatric Emergency Service (PES) has been serving the children of New York City for over 100 years.

We moved to a state-of-the art facility in 1996 and we are dedicated to the care of acutely ill and injured children.

Each year approximately 25,000 children and young adults are evaluated in the PES which is staffed around the clock by board certified physicians and nurses who specialize in the emergency care of children.

All attending physicians are on the faculty of the New York University School of Medicine in the departments of both Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine.

The PES manages patients with a wide range of medical, surgical, and psychiatric problems including asthma, appendicitis, child abuse, orthopedic injuries, major trauma, poisonings, and suicide.

Bellevue Hospital is a Level-1 Trauma center with a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and cares for many victims with serious and critical injuries.

In addition, Bellevue Hospital is a regional Spinal Cord Injury Center as well as a Limb Re-implantation Center and receives many referrals for these problems.

Considered the "flagship hospital" of the New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation, is a primary teaching hospital for the New York University School of Medicine.
