  1. As a board certified Emergency Physician ( who spent a fair amount of my training at CCHMC) I agree that kids are better served by practitioners who are comfortable and trained to treat kids. However all EPs are trained to treat Pts of ALL ages and we too use evidenced based protocols to appropriately treat children. There is a paucity of Children’s ED”s in the USA (I practice at a well respected institution that lacks one) and parents should never hesitate or delay taking a potentially seriously ill child to an ED or traveling long distances to a peds facility in a true Emergency. But yes CCHMC is truly a gem and Cincinnati is lucky that it’s there
