Department of Pediatrics Howard Spivak, MD, Director

The Pediatricians at Caritas Carney Hospital see children for well-child visits (physicals), immunizations, lead screens, WIC visits, camp physicals and much more! We also see children referred in from a network of affiliated health centers and private practices for urgent and emergency care. Our Pediatric Inpatient Unit is staffed by highly trained pediatric nurses who provide just the tender, love care your children deserve, and our pediatricians are here twenty four hours a day to see children in the inpatient unit and Emergency Department.

Our expanded hours at Caritas Carney Pediatrics (8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday) allow us to care for sick and injured children, as well as to see children for physicals and follow-up appointments during evening hours. In addition, we have providers who speak Spanish and Haitian Creole, and we have Vietnamese, Portuguese and other translators available at the hospital.
