The Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine has seventeen full-time, board certified Pediatric Emergency Medicine faculty dedicated to the care of children across our three dedicated pediatric emergency departments. Our annual patient volume is 25,000 at The Mount Sinai Hospital and 80,000 throughout the Mount Sinai Health System. The Division is housed in the Department of Emergency Medicine and is fully integrated with the Department of Pediatrics.
We have an outstanding three-year Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship program open to pediatric and emergency medicine residency graduates. We provide didactic and bedside teaching of pediatric emergency medicine not only to our fellows but to our Pediatric Residency, two emergency medicine residencies – The Mount Sinai Hospital and Mount Sinai Morningside, and two family medicine residencies, as well as medical students from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. We have highly successful faculty dedicated to ultrasound, simulation, community outreach, research, and education. Our Pediatric Emergency Medicine faculty are leaders here at Mount Sinai, in New York, and around the world.
In the Mount Sinai Health System, we have three dedicated Pediatric Emergency Departments: At Mount Sinai Hospital - Directed by Dr. Christopher Strother, at Mount Sinai Beth Israel - Directed by Dr. Anthoney Lim, and Mount Sinai Morningside - Directed by Dr. William Bonadio. At The Mount Sinai Hospital, our Pediatric Emergency Department serves as the hub of emergency medicine for the Health System, receiving transfers from around New York City for pediatric specialty care and evaluation. At Mount Sinai Beth Israel, our Division manages New York’s only Short Stay Unit for children: an Emergency Department Observation Unit dedicated to the care of children who require one or two days of care.
