Pediatric Emergency Center

The Children's Hospital at Saint Francis Pediatric Emergency Center (PEC) makes all the difference when dealing with a crisis in Tulsa, OK. A trip to the emergency department can be stressful for anyone; but for children – and parents with a sick or injured child – it is especially so. The PEC offers a full range of primary and tertiary sub-specialty care from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week.

Saint Francis is Prepared for Pediatric Emergencies

The Children’s Hospital at Saint Francis Pediatric Emergency Center opened in July 2008 to meet the medical emergency needs of young patients. From appendix trouble to car crashes, the PEC provides pediatric emergency services for infants, children and families throughout the Tulsa, OK, community. The PEC provides child-sized equipment and private rooms, as well as doctors trained in pediatric emergency medicine.

The “go to” pediatric emergency center for the most critically ill children in eastern Oklahoma, the PEC treats approximately 22,000 children every year. The PEC is located adjacent to the Saint Francis Trauma Emergency Center (TEC) on the east side of Saint Francis Hospital, 6161 South Yale Avenue.

Families may access the PEC through the main Emergency entrance, where patients have access to:
  • Child-friendly treatment rooms
