Letter from the Chair of Pediatrics
Welcome to TBHC’s Department of Pediatrics. We are committed to meeting the needs of our community and providing high-quality, compassionate care with the finest technology and services available today
Our department is part of a nationally accredited hospital offering a full spectrum of pediatric and adolescent services and specialties. We ensure the highest quality, most comprehensive care available in the New York metropolitan area, from birth to age 21. Our board certified pediatric physicians and surgeons, as well as our nurses and nurse practitioners have years of expertise and are dedicated to providing convenient, courteous and culturally sensitive care to the children and parents of our diverse neighborhoods. In every sense of the word, we are Keeping Brooklyn’s Kids Healthy.
Whether your child needs an outpatient well visit or vaccinations, pediatric-focused emergency care or 24-hour intensive inpatient hospital care, our team will communicate with you every step of the way to ensure your child’s needs are understood and met.
TBHC offers a full roster of ambulatory care at our on-site Children’s Health Center and Brooklyn Adolescent Center, as well as pediatric care in our many off-site family health centers. For children who need hospital inpatient or emergency care, we have dedicated pediatric specialists and hospital physicians in multiple disciplines including a fully staffed pediatric-focused Emergency Department, and a cutting-edge Level-3 perinatal care center/neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and 24-hour pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).
Our Child Life Program works to provide warm support to children and their families at all levels of our pediatric services. And, our pediatric care is complemented by excellent pediatric dentistry services in our Dentistry and Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery Center.
Furthermore, our department is home to a fully accredited pediatric residency and our pediatricians keep abreast of the latest thinking in pediatric primary and specialty care through their roles as teachers.
We are always challenging ourselves on ways to deliver more efficient and safer healthcare to our patients and their families. Together with a full range of inpatient care for children recovering from surgery or managing chronic illness, you can be sure you family will receive expert care, right in your own neighborhood. We are committed to Keeping Brooklyn Healthy.
