Pediatrics Unit

Providing Safe, Compassionate, Efficient Care: Every Child, Every Time

Peds2The MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center Pediatric Unit is a combined unit, accommodating both the Pediatric ED and Inpatient Pediatric patients. The unit is equipped with three dedicated inpatient beds with the ability to flex to six and 11 dedicated ED beds with the ability to flex to 18.

Patients requiring ICU care are transferred to other facilities after initial treatment and full stabilization, with implementation of advanced life support measures as necessary. Patients not requiring ICU care are admitted to Pediatrics, where there are full monitoring capabilities. Most pediatric subspecialty care is available at MedStar Franklin Square (orthopedics, surgery, psychiatry, otolaryngology, cardiology, gastroenterology, urology). Further Pediatric subspecialty support is provided via telephone consultation from the University of Maryland. The inpatient unit provides 24-hour care to patients up to age 18; the ED treats all patients age 17 and under.
