Emergency Medicine

Stony Brook's newly constructed state-of-the-art Pediatric Emergency Department, opened in November 2009, provides expert care for children in a patient- and family-centered environment. Our new facility offers expanded capacity and capabilities to meet the growing needs of Suffolk County. And, as a Level I Trauma Center, Stony Brook is equipped to treat the most severely ill and injured children.


The capabilities include:

  • Physicians who are board certified in pediatric emergency medicine

  • Experienced staff, including nurses, physician assistants and technologists with specialty pediatrics training

  • State-of-the-art diagnostics and technology such as the new 320-slice CT scanner, which delivers low dose radiation at extremely high speeds (thus eliminating the need for sedation or repeat scans for most children)

  • Negative pressure isolation rooms in which to evaluate children with potential airborne infectious diseases

  • An “ouch-less” environment in which a child’s pain and discomfort are immediately assessed and alleviated upon arrival
