If a member of your family requires an ER visit or hospitalization, we recommend the following hospitals. Unless you feel your child is in urgent/emergent need of care (call 911), please contact the physician on call (via the office phone) for a recommendation:
Stamford Hospital (has a pediatric ER)
One Hospital Plaza
Stamford, CT 06904
Bridgeport Hospital (part of the Yale system, has a pediatric ER)
267 Grant Street
Bridgeport, CT 06610
Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital (valet parking)
35 Park Street
New Haven, CT 06510
Norwalk Hospital *note they no longer have a pediatric floor, thus must be transferred if your child needs inpatient care
34 Maple Street
Norwalk, CT 06850
While our physicians have privileges at Norwalk Hospital and Stamford Hospital, this does not limit us from referring to the many other excellent pediatric services in the area.
We will often admit patients to Bridgeport Hospital, Yale-New Haven, Maria Fareri in Valhalla, and other pediatric hospitals in NYC. All of these institutions now utilize pediatric hospitalists, who are specially trained pediatricians who are present in the hospital full-time.
We prefer to have our patients managed by such hospitalists, as they are in the best position to manage care on-site for acutely ill children.
We do, however, expect the hospitalists to maintain regular contact with us and we are always available to answer questions you might have about your hospitalized child.
