At both Westchester Health Pediatrics and Phelps Hospital, your child comes first
At Westchester Health Pediatrics, our mission is to provide exceptional medical care to infants, children, adolescents and young adults. Sometimes delivering this highest level of care requires patients to be admitted to the hospital. In these cases, we’re proud to be affiliated with Phelps Hospital, one of our partner hospitals through Northwell Health.
Each child is unique, which is why the pediatric specialists at Phelps focus on individualized care
Children are physically and emotionally different from adults, which is why the medical professionals at Phelps understand that communicating with children about their health (and with their parents about their child’s health) takes a unique approach. It’s also why they believe so strongly in the importance of combining compassion with leading edge treatment when helping the children in our community. At Phelps, parents are encouraged to fully participate in their child’s care.
In the pediatric inpatient unit, pediatric hospitalists personally coordinate your child’s care
Hospitalists are physicians who work exclusively in a hospital, and a pediatric hospitalist is a family-focused physician with special expertise in caring for children. In the inpatient pediatric unit at Phelps, pediatric hospitalists work closely with bedside nurses, social workers and case managers to provide compassionate, coordinated care of the highest quality for your child.
Making your child’s hospital stay as pleasant as possible
We know that staying in a hospital can be unfamiliar and scary for many children. That’s why the doctors, nurses and staff in the inpatient pediatric unit at Phelps are specially trained in the specific medical and emotional needs of children, and are dedicated to providing a comfortable, child-friendly environment that makes a child’s hospital stay as comfortable as possible. They personally get to know each patient and their family, and encourage parents to fully participate in their child’s care, with the goal of returning them to their home as soon as possible.
