Current Wait:

Due to ongoing capacity constraints, WakeMed Emergency Departments only offer COVID-19 testing to people who have symptoms of the virus. While our Emergency Departments are always pleased to serve the community and will never turn away patients experiencing emergency medical conditions, Wake County COVID testing sites, WakeMed Urgent Care locations and MyCare 365 locations may be able to serve these non-emergent testing needs in a more timely manner.

Specifically designed to meet the emergency care needs of children, the Children’s Emergency Department was the first freestanding facility of its kind in North Carolina and the only dedicated Children’s Emergency Department in Wake County, caring for thousands of pediatric patients every year. 

A non-threatening, comfortable environment with a cheerful atmosphere, bright murals, children’s wall-art and child-sized furnishings. All this and a staff of doctors, nurses and support staff who know how to treat kids like kids, not little adults.

Children’s Emergency Department Features:

  • Staffing around the clock with Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physicians
  • 24-hour support from Wake County's only designated Trauma Center
  • Support and access to the doctors and specialists at WakeMed Children’s Hospital, Wake County’s only provider of inpatient care for children
  • Child life specialists to ease fears and calm children while they are being treated
  • Child-sized medical instruments and equipment
  • Private treatment rooms and a child-centered approach to procedures and tests
  • iPads for individual patient use
  • Closed Circuit in-room kid friendly movies
  • An interactive game floor in the waiting room
  • X-ray rooms with day-glow scenes when the lights go out
