Pikeville Medical Center’s (PMC) Emergency Department (ED) is seeing an increasing number of pediatric patients. This growing group prompted PMC to begin the certification process in November 2019 to become “Pediatric Ready” by the Kentucky Emergency Medical Services for Children (KYEMSC) Program.

Being recognized as “Pediatric Ready” demonstrates PMC’s commitment to enhancing emergency care services for children in our region.

“This recognition could not have come at a better time,” explained Clinical Manager of the PMC ED Brandi Adkins, RN, BSN.

“PMC is growing by leaps and bounds when it comes to pediatric care.We feel this announcement is just the beginning of great things to come.”

During the assessment, surveyors met with several staff members from various departments within the hospital to review procedures and documentation from PMC’s ED and discuss pediatric care provided at PMC.

Soon after the onsite review, PMC’s ED was notified that it had met the qualifications and was named a Pediatric Ready ED.

Only four other hospitals in Kentucky have been certified Pediatric Ready
