Our Emergency Department on the Thomas Campus is home to our Center for Trauma Care. The Center for Trauma Care is Arizona’s only American College of Surgeons-verified Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center.

Arizona ALS Base Hospital certification

Our Emergency Department on the Thomas Campus is certified by the Arizona Department of Health Services as an Advanced Life Support Base Hospital, the only children’s hospital in the state to earn this designation.<

As an ALS Base Hospital, Phoenix Children’s serves as a communications center that provides phone and online pediatric medical direction to certified EMTs and paramedics in the field — whether the patient’s destination is Phoenix Children’s or another hospital. By providing Phoenix Children’s pediatric emergency expertise to first responders, we can improve care even before a patient arrives at the hospital. This gives the patient the very best chance for recovery.
