The Children’s Center is the premier major tertiary care academic institution and level I trauma center for children in the state of Maryland and surrounding areas. Our goal is to innovate, develop leadership in the field and deliver the highest quality medical care in a safe, compassionate and child-friendly way.

The two Divisions that comprise Pediatric Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine include over 80 clinicians, including physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists and nurse practitioners, who provide care in pediatric anesthesiology, critical care medicine and pain management. In the Division of Pediatric Anesthesiology, our anesthesiologists are all board certified or board eligible, have completed subspecialty training in pediatric anesthesiology and/or critical care medicine, and many hold additional board certifications in pediatrics and pain management. In the Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine (PCCM), our pediatric intensivists are all board-certified pediatricians with subspecialty certification in pediatric critical care medicine. These doctors and nurses are world-renowned and ranked among the country and region’s top doctors in national surveys and Baltimore magazine.

More than 10,000 children are anesthetized for surgical and medical procedures, and more than 3,000 children are treated for acute and chronic pain conditions by the division every year.
