General Pediatrics

General Pediatrics

The Pediatric Department is comprised of faculty from New York Medical College who are experts in the care of children hospitalized with moderate to severe illnesses, or with illnesses that involve the coordination of multiple subspecialists or multiple hospital services. 

The Section of Academic General Pediatrics provides comprehensive inpatient care for patients referred to the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital, and then facilitates the seamless transfer of information back to the referring doctor when patients are discharged. Our staff also provide general pediatric consultations to subspecialists and surgeons whose pediatric patients have medical issues such as fevers, poor weight gain and mild to moderate respiratory issues. 

Complementary Pediatric Care Services

In addition to comprehensive pediatric care, other unique services and programs are provided by the General Pediatrics Section:

  • Complementary and Alternative Pediatric Therapies
  • Westchester Institute for Human Development
  • Medical student and resident education and mentorship
  • Primary care research
  • Evaluation and management of autism
  • Grant-supported research on childhood obesity
  • Child abuse education and prevention
