Quality care through pediatric telehealth services
In-person appointments aren’t always possible or convenient. You lead a busy life, and we want to be there for you and your family when you need us most. That’s why Maimonides offers pediatric telehealth services—so you can get the care you need from the comfort of your own home or while on the go.
Our pediatric telehealth services provide you with access to the same high-quality pediatric medical services and guidance that you would receive in our children’s hospital.
Connect with a Maimonides pediatric medical provider from the comfort of your home with Maimonides Scheduled Virtual Visits. Registration is easy and will allow you to schedule your visit when it’s convenient for you.
After you schedule your virtual visit, you will receive an email from MaimoCare with the link and information needed for your virtual visit. If you need to reschedule or don’t receive an email, please call your provider’s office.
Our pediatric telehealth services
Our younger patients often feel more comfortable in their own homes, and our telehealth services make it possible for them to get the care they need without having to travel.
We offer a wide range of pediatric telehealth services, including:
- Well-child check-ups and visits – We offer regular well-child check-ups and visits, so you can keep track of your child’s development and ensure they’re on track.
- Behavioral health services – We provide behavioral health services to help our patients deal with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.

The pediatric trauma center—treating life-threatening injuries and illnesses
Maimonides is Brooklyn’s only pediatric trauma center. This certifies that we are staffed and equipped to treat life-threatening injuries that result from serious incidents like falls and car accidents. The New York State Department of Health recognizes only a select few hospitals for dedication to meeting the standards of care established by the American College of Surgeons—Committee on Trauma.
Children have different reactions to injuries than adults, so they must be seen by specialized experts when they have suffered a trauma of any kind. Pediatric emergency care is provided in the fully-accredited Pediatric Emergency Room at Maimonides, a division of both Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics.

Our pediatric hospitalists give your child coordinated and individualized care
We understand that admitting a child to the hospital can be frightening for both of you. To help alleviate those fears and give you and your child individualized attention, we have a full-time Pediatric Hospitalist Program. A pediatric hospitalist is a board-certified pediatrician who specializes in coordinating the care of children admitted to the hospital.
Maimonides Children’s Hospital is one of the few hospitals in the area that has this program. Our hospitalist works with families, nursing staff, and other doctors to coordinate the hospital stay and treatment for pediatric patients. For children under the care of a Maimonides’ pediatrician, the hospitalist works closely with the admitting physician. Children admitted to the hospital without a pediatrician are under the direct care of our hospitalist.
Our pediatric hospitalist evaluates and delivers child-friendly care in an environment created just for children.
