Inpatient Pediatric Care at Nuvance Health: Why Choose Us?

Pediatric hospitalists at Nuvance Health coordinate and streamline your child's care, so they receive appropriate, timely treatment. Highlights of our program include:

  • Experienced, reassuring team:
    Specialists explain your child’s treatment options and answer your questions, so you know what to expect every step of the way.
  • Continuous care:
    We communicate often with your child’s regular pediatrician, so their ongoing care is as smooth as possible.
  • Specialty care:
    Our partnership with Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, a nationally-ranked, pediatric acute care hospital, allows us to provide evidence-based care from pediatric subspecialists. These specialists focus on specific, challenging medical situations and follow patients after discharge.
  • Welcoming environment:
    Our private rooms offer space for your family to spend time together as your child heals and recovers.
  • Full range of support:
    Social workers and case managers help your family access the resources you need while your child is in the hospital. We also provide financial counseling to help you understand your payment options.
