The Service

The pediatric emergency service was founded along with the clinic, in 1993. Since then, this unit has evolved along with the clinic, as Fundación Valle del Lili has specialized in high-complexity patients. Currently, we provide medical attention to around 2500 patients per month between 0 to 16 years of age.

The Service has capacity to attend low and high complexity patients and with the support of every pediatric and surgical specialty, as well as the pediatric intensive care unit, and the cardiovascular and newborn units. In the Pediatric emergency service, patients with organ transplants (liver, kidney, bone marrow transplant, etc.), cancer patients and patients with congenital diseases are attended.

What is the target population of the service?

The Pediatric emergency service provides 24-hour care, given by group of pediatricians who have all the necessary skills to attend children in multiple emergency situations. The service is constantly bringing itself up to date and works continuously making adjustments for optimizing attention. 

25 pediatricians and one general practitioner are part of this service, with 36 beds available.

31 cubicles are available, and resuscitation area with 2 cubicles. Moreover, 4 pediatricians are permanently on call to provide healthcare during the day and 2 pediatricians are always available at night.

Procedures performed go from emergency consultation to resuscitation, in the case of critical patients if they need it. Alternatively, in case a patient needs catheter placement or endotracheal intubation the service may perform such procedures whenever they are requiered.

Also, in case of wounded patients that need to be sutured or patients with fractures and/or orthopedic injuries, a specialist in the field will always perform the procedure.

25 pediatricians are part of this Service and which is also supported by every medical and surgical specialty needed to attend patients.

– If the complexity and severity of the patients’ condition requires it, treatment is provided regardless of the type of healthcare insurance they hold, and we ensure that children are accompanied by both parents as it may be possible.
