If you need to bring your child to the emergency room, Ivy Pediatrics recommends The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson or St. Peter's in New Brunswick. If a child needs to be hospitalized, they will be taken care of by the pediatric hospitalists. We do not see patients in the hospital, but we closely coordinate the care with the pediatric hospitalists.
