institution. Our main ED comprises of a core urban population with
an annual patient volume of more than 63,000. Our CMH
South ED comprises of mostly suburban population, with an annual

Both sites provide an excellent
mix of emergent, urgent and routine pediatric diagnoses. We provide
24-hour attending/fellow coverage and are the only Level 1

degrees in public health, bioinformatics, health professions
