Pediatric Hospitalists Care For Newborns & Hospitalized Children

Parents of newborns and hospitalized children have added reassurance about their children’s care through our Pediatric Hospitalist service.

While we recommend “rooming in” where your baby is in the room with you during your hospital stay, we know some babies need additional care that can’t be provided in your room.

Our Level 1 Special Care Nursery provides this additional care when your baby needs it. In addition to skilled nurses, your  baby will be cared for by a Pediatric Hospitalist who is experienced and skilled in caring for newborns. These Board Certified pediatricians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help care for your newborn.

Trained in children’s hospitals and  Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU), they attend higher risk deliveries. They care for healthy newborns as well  those that are experiencing problems such as respiratory distress, infections, jaundice and blood sugar issues. If a transfer is needed to a NICU, they collaborate closely with Peyton Manning and Riley Children’s Hospitals. You may also request the hospital of your choice.

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