White Plains Hospital and Montefiore Bring Pediatric Specialty Care to White Plains
With a new office dedicated to specialty conditions in children, White Plains Hospital and Montefiore commit to expanding pediatric care in Westchester.
Advanced pediatric care in Westchester became more convenient with the opening of the new Montefiore Pediatric Specialty practice. Pediatric cardiologists, pediatric gastroenterologists, pediatric surgeons, a pediatric rheumatologist and a pediatric nephrologist from the renowned Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) are now seeing patients at 33 Davis Avenue in White Plains.
Unlike general pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists are the only physicians uniquely qualified to treat infants, children and adolescents with complex, chronic conditions. They also focus on the developmental and emotional needs of children and adolescents, which can be different from those of adults.
“Having access to advanced pediatric care, closer to home, is so important for families,” says Frances Bordoni, Executive Vice President for Ambulatory and Physician Services and Business Development at White Plains Hospital. “Montefiore has some of the best pediatric specialists in the country. To bring these services to Westchester eliminates barriers and heightens peace of mind for families who no longer have to scramble to get their children the care they need.”
Through its partnership with Montefiore Einstein and CHAM, White Plains Hospital enhances its pediatric specialty care in several critical areas. CHAM’s Pediatric Heart Center is a world leader in advanced cardiovascular care for patients with congenital heart diseases. CHAM is also recognized for pediatric surgery, treatment of gastrointestinal conditions, and its comprehensive program for children with kidney problems, including New York state’s first dedicated pediatric dialysis facility.
“We are delighted to enhance access to our team of pediatric subspecialists, many of whom have raised their own children in Westchester. No matter the symptom, condition or question, our team is ready to care for children and families in need of sophisticated specialty care at the Davis Avenue location,” said Michael D. Cabana, MD, MPH, Physician-in-Chief, The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore and The Michael I. Cohen, M.D., University Chair, Department of Pediatrics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
