ER Reimagination

Making a world of difference in pediatric emergency care


ER reimagination

Enter an entirely new world of pediatric emergency care. The Emergency Room (ER) at Children’s Medical Center Dallas, the flagship hospital at Children’s Health℠, is undergoing a complete overhaul. We’re reimagining a better ER experience for everyone – parents, patients and team members alike.

Construction at our ER will occur in three phases over the next several years. During this time, the ER will remain fully operational with a continued focus on patient care and safety. This is an exciting time for all of us, and we want to thank you for your patience as we transform and improve your experience at Children’s Health.


Changes that make a difference

Based on research and family-centered focus groups, we’ve developed a comprehensive construction plan. One in which simplifying the patient journey, implementing updated technology and establishing a more efficient workflow is just the beginning.

Transformation you’ll see across our ER

  • Improved waiting areas and front entrance
  • Upgraded exam and triage rooms
  • Streamlined patient access and flow
  • Enhanced trauma rooms
  • Additional amenities for patient families including ER valet

Updated Decor

A new ER inspired by our patients

We listened to your ideas on how to improve our ER, and we’ll be implementing a number of them including transforming patient rooms and waiting areas into some of your favorite places. From the inviting underworld of the ocean to the adventurous setting of the jungle to the brave new heights of the mountains, it will be a new landscape of care.
