NIGHT NURSE IS OUR NEW TRIAGE SERVICE FOR YOUR AFTER HOURS PATIENT CARE NEEDS!
Westchester Park Pediatrics now enlists Night Nurse for the professional triage of after-hour calls, free of charge.
Night Nurse has been providing triage coverage for pediatric medicine since 1999. We know our patients will receive the highest standard of timely triage from these experienced pediatric RNs/NPs.

If your call requires referral to the ER, the advice line nurse will contact the doctor on call. The next morning the office will have a report on your call and will follow up as needed. We appreciate your understanding and are certain this will only improve our 365 day-a-year services provided in our office. Thank you for choosing our practice.
