Pediatrics at ORMC

At ORMC, our pediatric hospitalists care for children with a wide range of illnesses that require hospitalization. These physicians work closely with their patients’ primary physicians to provide a summary of care, as well as additional details for follow-up care upon discharge. They can also provide care in other hospital areas, including the emergency room, labor and delivery and the newborn nursery.

Our newly renovated 16-bed pediatric unit combines comfortable accommodations and specialized medical care to provide peace of mind for both you and your child.

Newborn Nursery

Our pediatric hospitalists also provide care to all newborns in the nursery. Working in concert with the Neonatal Intensive Care team, they can provide the optimal level of care that is required in the right setting. Upon discharge, the baby’s follow-up appointment will be made with the community primary care pediatric provider of your choice, and all hospital records will be made available to them for continuity of care.
