Newborn Nursery Policy Updates

Newborn Nursery Policy Updates

posted in: Announcements | 0
Due to coronavirus concerns, Vanderbilt has asked community physicians to refrain from rounding in their newborn nursery. If you deliver your baby at Vanderbilt, your baby will now see a Vanderbilt physician while they are in the hospital. If your baby needs a circumcision, we will perform that procedure in the office after you are discharged. We are currently not sure how long this new policy will last, but will post an update once we hear one. We look forward to returning to the Vandy nursery as soon as it is deemed safe to do so. For the time being, we will continue to provide care for newborns at both Centennial and St. Thomas Midtown nurseries. We are also available at our clinic for sick visits, chronic condition management, and checkups. We have procedures in place to prevent sick children and well children from crossing paths. Please call us if you have questions.
Thank you for the privilege of caring for your family,
Old Harding Pediatric Associates
