01. Operation of Korea's First Pediatric Emergency Room
Seoul National University Hospital has been operating a pediatric emergency room for independent treatment of children since 1985 for the first time in Korea.
In 2004, when the Seoul area emergency medical center was opened at Seoul National University Hospital, the pediatric emergency room was integrated and operated within the Seoul area emergency medical center.
Since the Pediatric Emergency Center was designated as a specialized emergency room for pediatrics and opened in 2013, the pediatric emergency room has moved to the existing children's hospital and has become independent.
