Pediatric Care

When any member of your family has an urgent medical issue, Sibley Memorial Hospital's emergency department is there for you, no matter what their age. Our award-winning ED sees people of all ages and can treat most acute problems; Sibley does not provide inpatient pediatric care, but can coordinate transfer to another facility if needed.
