Pediatrician: Finding a pediatrician for your child is one of your most important tasks. Cornell Health does not provide primary health care for children. Some family practice physicians in Ithaca provide care for infants and children. The following pediatric offices accept both SHP and Medicaid reimbursements:
North East Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine: 10 Graham Road, (607) 257-2188
Your child’s primary health care provider can make referrals to specialty care if needed.
Cayuga Medical Center offers after-hours outpatient pediatric and adolescent care (infant through 17 years old) in a specialized care setting. Kids Care is staffed by our local pediatricians from Buttermilk Falls Pediatrics and Northeast Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, and by registered nurses who are experienced in the care of sick babies and children.
For emergency care at any time, call 911 or contact Cayuga Medical Center Emergency Department at (607) 274-4411.
Cornell Health: When you visit Cornell Health for your own health care, let your health care providers know that you are a parent so they can be sensitive to that dimension of your life. Don’t hesitate to ask for assistance in finding the resources you and your family may need. All services at Cornell Health are confidential. Health records are kept completely separate from all other Cornell records, and information about your health is not shared with other departments at Cornell.
