Cayuga Medical Center has a pediatrics unit that provides urgent, walk-in outpatient care in conjunction with a dedicated inpatient pediatrics unit. At a time when many hospitals have chosen to fold their pediatric units into existing adult-medical surgical units, Cayuga Medical Center has decided to deliver pediatric care in the most accommodating way possible.
Our model for pediatric care is in tune with the needs of our community. The unit is staffed with community-based pediatricians who serve on our medical staff and who are in practice with Buttermilk Falls Pediatrics and Northeast Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
Our outstanding team of experts includes board certified pediatricians, registered nurses experienced in pediatric and adolescent care, and respiratory therapists. We work together to provide patient-centered care for infants, children, and adolescents up to the age of seventeen years.
Our pediatric unit offers both inpatient care and an innovative outpatient service called Kids Care, which provides after-hours pediatric and adolescent care in a walk-in clinic setting.
Inpatient pediatric care is provided in a child-friendly, patient-centered atmosphere, where we welcome parents. Our experienced pediatric nurses and pediatricians care for:
- Surgical patients between the ages of one month and 17 years
- Children with acute illness, congenital anomalies, chronic illness, seizure disorders, and trauma.
