After Hours Pediatric Care
At Cayuga Medical Center we understand that babies, children, and teenagers don’t always get sick or injured on weekdays or when the doctor’s office is open.
To better meet the needs of our community, we offer after-hours outpatient pediatric and adolescent care (infant through 17 years old) in a specialized care setting. Kids Care is staffed by our local pediatricians from Buttermilk Falls Pediatrics and Northeast Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, and by registered nurses who are experienced in the care of sick babies and children.
Kids Care is located in the Pediatrics Services Unit at Cayuga Medical Center, providing young patients with outpatient pediatric care outside of the Emergency Department and Urgent Care Centers. Whenever a patient is seen at Kids Care, we provide feedback about the visit as soon as possible to the child’s primary care physician. Our goal is to ensure a smooth transition of care and good communication with the child’s established health care provider.
