Your pediatric physician along with a team of family nurse practitioners provide complete care for your child, including regular checkups, immunizations, health screenings, developmental monitoring and urgent care visits. Our health care services are sensitive to the needs of adolescents and provide support on a variety of lifestyle issues. For pediatric patients followed at NEW Health, we offer 24/7 phone access for urgent care needs, including a nurse triage service immediately available after-hours and on holidays via our main number.
Please see our useful links to information on many aspects of pediatric care, as well as finding more information on line via MGH Patient Gateway resources (eg CARMA).
