SUNY Pediatric Emergency Department

Just a quick reminder we are making the transition to our new pediatric ED on Tuesday the 9th at 0700. 


Renovations to existing pediatric ED to accommodate expansion of the adult ED. Once completed we will typically see higher acuity patients on the “A” side (current adult ED) while the “B” side will see less acute patients. Starting off our B side will see normal operations from 0800-midnight. We are striving to reduce wait times and transition to triage patients at the bedside.
