Newborn Healthcare: In the Hospital & After

West End Pediatrics, P.C. is affiliated with New York Presbyterian as well as Columbia Medical Center.  If you're planning to deliver at either of these hospitals our physicians can visit you and your newborn post-delivery.  Alert hospital staff that you'd like to be followed by the physicians at West End Pediatrics and we'll be notified when the baby has arrived.

If you're planning to deliver at another hospital, your first visit with our physicans will be at our office after you've been discharged.  Prior to discharge, the hospitalist will let you know when they think you should be seen by your pediatrician. 

Remember to bring your child's newborn discharge information to your first visit!

 

To schedule this first visit with your primary care pediatrician, call us at (212) 769-3070 or (212-353-0072.)  Let the staff member know that you need to schedule a hospital follow up for a newborn baby and you will be scheduled for an appointment based on your discharge instructions.

 

Babies who are born needing significant medical intervention will be cared for by the specially trained neonatal staff at each hospital in their special care nursery. If you plan to follow up with West End Pediatrics and your baby is admitted to the special care nursery, please call our office and ask our staff to notify our on-call pediatrician.

Newborn Health Questions?

Our Pediatricians Listen & Answer

Throughout your years as a parent, remember that children of all ages have their own individual personalities and behavior patterns. Babies enter this world with their own unique temperament, and comparing your infant’s development with those of other like-aged children can be concerning as easily as it can be reassuring. We can help you get the answers and information you need to have peace of mind that comes with knowing your baby is receiving the right medical care.

As questions arise, please know that members of West End Pediatrics look forward to discussing them with you. We can help you wade through what may feel like piles of information to find the right solution for your newborn, family and circumstances. Our nurses can quickly answer your questions and point you to helpful patient resources and information.

West End Pediatrics is proud to be a part of such a big step in our patients’ lives, and look forward to providing the best pediatric care and services to your child throughout her or his life. With two pediatric center locations in New York, we see many patients from surrounding cities, and beyond. We look forward to meeting with you and your new baby!
