Brand New Children’s Emergency Center is Now Open

May 6th, 2021 | Uncategorized

UMC’s brand new Children’s Emergency Center has opened and we cannot be more excited! The UMC Children’s Emergency Center is an emergency room just for kids, with access to more resuscitation and trauma rooms for children than any other hospital in West Texas.

The new center has 8 dedicated pedi beds and 5 trauma beds with one dedicated as a pediatric trauma room. There is immediate access to x-rays, CT scans, ultrasounds and MRI to provide the most advanced care for children. We also have an in-house pediatric orthopedic surgery team who can quickly help us with children who are injured.

We are also the only Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) hospital in the region. UMC was able to provide this amazing Children’s Emergency Center with the support from donations to our Children’s Hospital and CMN’s community partners. Your donations matter!

Thank you to all who made this possible!
