Russell T Migita, MD


"I believe that we can make a great Emergency Department even better. Parents come to the ED because they have an urgent concern about their child. I love Childrens "continuous performance improvement" approach because it focuses on what families value timely, high-quality care and an opportunity to get their concerns addressed by our outstanding medical providers. I come to work each day because I love spending time at the bedside with patients and their families. I want to make sure that all of our providers have the resources they need to do the same thing 24 hours a day and 365 days a year."
