Emergency Department

Our Emergency Department at Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo has an annual volume of more than 45,000 pediatric patients under the age of 21 and is the tertiary referral center for pediatric subspecialty care.

We are the Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center servicing all 12 counties of Western New York.  Our Division of Emergency Medicine operates the Kids Express Program (Fast Track Clinic) during the busiest shifts (11 am to 11 pm) to facilitate the care of less seriously ill and injured patients.
