Pediatric Trauma Program

Pediatric Trauma Program

The pediatric trauma program at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital and Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center is equipped to meet the needs of pediatric patients with conditions ranging from minor injuries and illnesses to major trauma. Our Emergency Center (EC) is one of two pediatric Level I trauma centers in Houston, and is the only trauma center in the region able to admit patients of all ages to be cared for at the same facility. This provides a unique advantage for families, especially in trauma situations when multiple family members are admitted to the EC, because we have the ability to care for the entire family unit under one roof.

For patients needing critical care, increasing the chance for survival and recovery means getting the best care as quickly as possible. Through our hospital-based air ambulance provider, Memorial Hermann Life Flight®, we are able to provide rapid transport within a 150-mile radius of the Texas Medical Center and administer emergency, specialized care to patients from infants to adolescents. We also provide a ground ambulance service for cases up to 300 miles away.
