NorthBay Healthcare in Fairfield seeks another designation — Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics
The Reporter

NorthBay Healthcare is aiming to add another designation to its résumé by having the first Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics. Ensuring that emergency departments provide effective emergency care to children is a national project called the National Pediatric Readiness Project. While the EDAP is not a trauma program for children, the enhanced care for young patients will complement the Level 2 trauma center designation that NorthBay Healthcare seeks.
