As long as they are credentialed as different specialties yes. Which the ER provider should be different than the Peds.
I will say though, we had a situation where I used to work where our Peds rotated thru our urgent care. So we had to be careful, even though the patient was seen in urgent care the provider was still peds so they were established. Probably not the case in your ER but thought I would mention it just incase.
