Pediatrics

First, we'll ease your worries. Many members of our expert team of doctors and nurses at Scottsdale Shea Medical Center are parents, too. They'll reassure you and your child while focusing on delivering personalized emergency or inpatient care.

Emergency care 

While all HonorHealth emergency departments serve patients of all ages, HonorHealth offers a dedicated pediatric emergency department at Scottsdale Shea Medical Center. Designed just for kids and staffed by board-certified emergency physicians and compassionate nurses trained in pediatric care, our goal is to take the “scary” out of the hospital experience. Serving the Northeast Valley, this pediatric ER has pediatric specialists available with 24-hour coverage for pediatric surgery and orthopedic needs.

Inpatient care

If your child needs to stay overnight at Scottsdale Shea Medical Center, a Child Life Specialist is one of the first professionals he or she will meet. This staff member is trained to interact with children in a hospital setting to help them understand their treatment and to reduce their anxiety and apprehension.

  • Pediatric general surgery
  • Pediatric cardiology
  • Pediatric pulmonology
  • Pediatric anesthesiology
  • Pediatric endocrinology
  • Pediatric orthopedics
  • Pediatric hematology / oncology
  • Pediatric otolaryngology or ENT (ears, eyes nose and throat)

In addition, Scottsdale Shea Medical Center is the only hospital in the Northeast Valley with a Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) designation, caring for critically ill newborns and mothers with high-risk pregnancies.
