Pediatric Emergency Department opens today at The Medical Center

Susan McWhirter, Chief of Staff at The Medical Center in Columbus, said Tuesday that an emergency room can be a scary place for anyone but it is especially so for a child. She said the hospital's new pediatric emergency department which opens for business Wednesday at 7 a.m. will be "kid friendly" not just because of the colorful decor but because its entire staff has been specially trained in the care and treatment of children. "In this environment, kids will feel safer than one in which they are surrounded by adults who are sick or injured," McWhirter, a pediatrician, said. "The quality of care for the children will be the best."
