Thursday, September 30, 2010 - Broward Health Coral Springs Medical Center Voted Best Pediatric ER in Broward County

Coral Springs, FL - Broward Health Coral Springs Medical Center (CSMC) is the recipient of the 2010 South Florida Kids Crown Award for the “Best Pediatric ER in Broward County.” The recognition was based on votes from readers of South Florida Parenting magazine who vote for family-friendly places that offer the best activities, products, and services in South Florida. 

“We were able to achieve the Kids Crown Award during an inconvenient construction phase of our ER by focusing on customer service and patient and family-centered care, as well as coaching and maintaining an exceptional staff,” said Sylvia Conlee, CSMC regional manager of children’s services. “It is an honor to be chosen by the public, and we look forward to seeing what we can achieve in our brand new, state-of-the-art facility.”

This award was announced at a most opportune time, since CSMC is near completion of its more than $21 million expansion of their entire emergency department. When this expansion is finished, every family will have a private room with their own telephone and flat-screen TV. On October 19 at 7 a.m., CSMC will open its doors to a brand new pediatric ER. 

With highly specialized pediatricians and pediatric nurses 24 hours a day, emergency medicine is always available. CSMC’s dedicated pediatric services also include: Neonatal Intensive Care, Pediatric Intensive Care, in-patient pediatrics, on-site high risk clinic, pediatric sub-specialists, pediatric rehabilitation, Sleep Disorders Center, Child Life program, Camp Koral Kids (diabetic camp), and community education classes.

“We are very proud of our accomplishments and look forward to serving the community with our world-class healthcare,” said Dr. Daniel Stone, medical director of CSMC’s ED. “Our entire staff is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to our patients.”
