Our experienced team is certified by the American College of Surgeons as a level II pediatrics trauma Center and is the only verified pediatric trauma center in the region.





It's good to know that in an emergency, there's a centrally located place specially designed to care for sick or injured children.  The region's only verified pediatric trauma center, Soin Pediatric Trauma and Emergency Center, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and prepared for a child's little and big emergencies


Specially trained to care for your child
The emergency and trauma staff are specially trained in pediatric emergency care.  Our physicians are trained and board certified in pediatric emergency medicine and our nurses are certified in pediatric advanced life support.  Because kids are different from adults and we know how scary a trip to the emergency department might be, we offer child life therapists and social workers to help children and their families through the emotional and psychosocial stress that can sometimes accompany medical emergencies.

Standardized rooms for emergencies
No matter the room, the equipment, instruments, and supplies are located in the same place to make them easily accessible.  Our focus is on caring for our patients and when seconds count, quick access to the right-sized equipment is important.  The rooms are stocked with with all the different sizes of equipment needed to provide care to the smallest infant to the largest teenager.

Kid-friendly and family-centered
The emergency department is made for kids.  From the slushie machine to the interactive wall in the waiting room, everything is designed to help ease an anxious child, siblings, and support a worried parent.

Nationally recognized nurse outreach program
Dayton Children's nationally recognized nurse outreach program provides follow up on lab work and procedures for high-risk patients and for children who leave the emergency room without being seen by a physician.
