Parents of newborns and hospitalized children have added reassurance about their children’s care through the Pediatric Hospitalist service at Henry Community Health’s Main Campus.

In The Hospital 24/7

Board Certified Pediatric Hospitalists who work only in the Hospital are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to attend high risk deliveries, care for newborns and for children admitted to the Women & Children’s Unit. They also are available for consultation for infants and children seen in the Emergency Department.

Significant Experience and Training

The Pediatric Hospitalists have significant experience, knowledge and training regarding the needs of newborns and hospitalized children. The Hospitalists know how to care for infants and children in a way that is comfortable and reassuring for parents and the child. They also can facilitate the transfer to a tertiary hospital if specialized care not provided at Henry Community Health is needed.

They are part of the Henry Community Health team working with staff in the Women & Children’s Unit and coordinating care with the pediatricians at New Castle Pediatrics, family medicine physicians at New Castle Family & Internal Medicine and other primary care physicians as needed.

Pediatric hospitalists include: David Zipes, MD, Director; Heather Bricker, MD; Donald Miller, DO; Cheryl Klein,  MD; and Brian Sykes, MD.
