As of June 11, 2018, Piedmont Pediatrics will no longer provide in-house care for newborns and patients at Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital. The decision to stop working in the hospital has been a difficult one for our practice, but we feel that we will better serve our office patients without the frequent disruptions from emergency department calls and for C-section coverage.
Our goal is to prioritize consistent, reliable care for our families who have taken the time to schedule office appointments. With these new changes in coverage, we won’t have to emergently reschedule well-child visits due to hospital calls. We will also be able to provide new and additional services such as prenatal visits and classes on Baby Basics, CPR, and Lactation Assistance.
Thank you for your understanding and support as we change our practice to serve you better. We are grateful for the patients and families that make Piedmont Pediatrics such a wonderful and special community.
