New Model of Nursery Care

April 17, 2019 by Callie London

On April 1, 2019 Watauga Medical Center will move to a new model of
nursery care, using pediatric hospitalists to take care of newborn
infants. As a group, the pediatricians of Blue Ridge Pediatrics have
provided this service for almost 30 years. But as the medical system has
changed, we have realized the need to focus our efforts on our outpatient
clinics. Rest assured we are still taking new patients, including
newborns, and will continue to do so. By not managing the newborn nursery,
we will have more schedule availability in our three offices and the
potential to expand our services to the community. As a group we have been
involved in a years long planning process for this change and we are
confident that the pediatric hospitalists will be committed to continuing a
high level of pediatric care at Watauga Medical Center. If you have any
questions about any of these changes please do not hesitate to ask.
