Comprehensive and compassionate pediatric care from birth to young adulthood is a cornerstone of the mission at Refuah, where we provide the families of our community with a continuum of care.

Appointments are always held open to accommodate newborns and parents can schedule these even before they leave the maternity department at the hospital. Regular well-visits are encouraged. These occur more often in the first two years of life, and then annually. These visits are excellent opportunities for parents to get guidance on their children’s developmental and physical milestones, and to raise concerns about nutrition, behavior, school performance, and routine preventive care with our staff of dedicated providers. We strongly believe that the foundations of lifelong good health are laid early and that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. To that end, our physicians and nurses support and encourage breastfeeding for as long as is possible. In addition, we all believe in the safety and necessity of routine vaccination, so that parents can give their children the best start in life.

In addition to routine visits, same-day visits are always available for all sick children and our extended hours – evening, nighttime, and weekend – make it easier for working mothers who may have other children in school, to ensure their children’s health.

Should your child require evaluation and treatment beyond the routine, Refuah boasts a full complement of pediatric specialists on-site including cardiology, pulmonology, endocrinology, behavioral health and rheumatology.
