PM Pediatrics, an award-winning provider of specialized pediatric urgent care, serving patients from cradle through college, will open its doors in Yonkers, NY on Monday, September 15. The new location is the second in Westchester County, joining PM Pediatrics of Mamaroneck, and the 12th overall in the New York Metropolitan area. The 5,069 square foot jungle-themed office is located at 2290 Central Park Avenue, and features on-site x-ray and lab, 10 exam rooms and two procedure rooms. Dr. Robert Best will serve as Medical Director for PM Pediatrics of Yonkers, overseeing all medical operations for the practice. Dr. Best is board-certified in both Pediatrics and Pediatric Emergency Medicine.
The Yonkers location will provide the following operating hours: Monday through Saturday from Noon to Midnight, and Sundays and select holidays from 10:00am to Midnight.
"We are excited to open our doors in Yonkers and get to know the families in and around the largest city in Westchester," said Dr. Jeffrey Schor, managing member of PM Pediatrics. "Children and young adults deserve accessible specialized urgent care from pediatric emergency medicine specialists trained specifically to diagnose and treat them. PM Pediatrics delivers just that, and we look forward to bringing our distinct model of healthcare to a new community."
The company's newest office joins the following PM Pediatrics locations throughout New York and New Jersey:
- Westchester: Mamaroneck
- Long Island: Syosset, Selden, North Babylon and Carle Place
- New York City: Bayside, Queens and Cobble Hill, Brooklyn
- Rockland: Spring Valley
- New Jersey: Livingston, North Brunswick and Holmdel
Additionally, PM Pediatrics is set to open new practices in Forest Hills/Queens and Springfield, New Jersey this Fall, and in Midwood/Brooklyn in early 2015.
Each state-of-the-art office is staffed by Pediatric Emergency Specialists, including board-certified pediatric emergency physicians and pediatricians, who provide care and treatment for a broad array of illness and injuries including asthma, fever and other infections, dehydration, sprains and fractures, wounds requiring stitches, and much more. PM Pediatrics features on-site digital x-ray which produces high resolution images read by a board-certified pediatric radiologist, and sent easily to a patient's pediatrician or orthopedist. They also feature a comprehensive laboratory on-site, which performs blood and urine tests and a variety of rapid tests for infectious diseases.
Unlike traditional urgent care practices, PM Pediatrics treats children and young adults exclusively, with physicians, nurses, equipment and an office environment all tailored to provide the best possible care for pediatric patients. They believe strongly in a child's medical home and do not offer wellness visits, physicals, school check-ups or immunizations. PM Pediatrics is committed to sending each patient's medical record to their primary care provider the day of their visit, ensuring timely follow-up and continuity of care. Each location also has access to specialists such as plastic surgeons or orthopedists, as needed. All PM Pediatrics practices are uniquely themed and feature TVs in every exam room, creating a warm, welcoming setting for kids and adults alike. This model of care, comfort and convenience has been enthusiastically received with over 500,000 patient visits to date.
