Pediatric experts for your emergency care.


The Pediatric ER at Reston Hospital Center is separate from the main emergency room in an environment designed to comfort and care for children.

As a parent or caregiver, you don’t just want expert care for your child when they aren’t feeling well, you also want the comfort of knowing they are being treated by pediatric specialists. We provide specialized care just for children 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
