The Topfer Emergency Center at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas offers state-of-the-art pediatric emergency services to young Central Texans in need. The Topfer Emergency Center is one of only five dedicated pediatric ERs in Texas and the only one in Central Texas and almost triples the capacity that was available at the Children’s Hospital of Austin.
The Center is staffed around the clock by board-certified emergency medicine physicians and nursing staff with special training and experience in pediatric emergency care. Staff at the center are trained not only in caring for the medical needs of children but also for the emotional needs of children during the stress of injury and illness.
The Emergency center, named after the Topfer family, is designed with essential features to support the Pediatric Trauma Program.
