Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics
The Department of Pediatrics at BronxCare Health System is dedicated to improving the health of infants, children and adolescents through excellence in patient care, education, research and advocacy, embraced by our faculty and staff who are deeply committed to the welfare of our community.
Our programs span the range of services from the latest advances in Hi-Tech Neonatal Care to Child & Adolescent Health & Education programs for children with complex medical needs. Our group of pediatric sub-specialists form one of the largest and most skilled groups of pediatric experts in the city. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures that top-quality care is coordinated between research, education and clinical services. Our centers of excellence and funded research programs have served this community by providing access to treatment trials and focus on patient and parent education as an essential component of our clinical service. Our department is very proud to have introduced several innovative programs into this community while engaging residents in training in all of these projects.
