Effective January 1, 2023, Holyoke Pediatric Associates is accepting only newborns to our practice as well as siblings of our current patients. We expect that this will be a temporary change, and we anticipate that we will be able to accept new patients soon. This decision was made to allow for the best possible care to our current patients and their families. Thank you for your understanding during this temporary change.

Expecting or adopting? We love meeting expectant parents at Holyoke Pediatrics. Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life and you may have many questions. Here at Holyoke Pediatrics we are committed to keeping your baby healthy and providing you with the tools needed to parent with confidence. We know how important it is to find the right pediatrician for your new baby. We encourage all expecting parents to schedule a free prenatal consult with one of our providers who can answer all of your questions. This service is offered at no charge, but we request that you call to schedule an appointment. Please call 413-536-2393 option 3 and we will address your questions about our practice and coordinate a prenatal consult with the provider you have chosen.
Our pediatricians are on staff at Baystate Medical Center and we take care of our newborn patients there every morning. If you deliver at Baystate Medical Center, please be sure to notify the hospital staff that you have chosen Holyoke Pediatrics as your baby's pediatrician. If you deliver at a hospital other than Baystate Medical Center, your newborn will be taken care of by that hospital's staff pediatrician, but be sure to tell them you are selecting Holyoke Pediatrics as your child's pediatrician office. On the day of your baby’s discharge from the hospital, please call our office to register your baby and schedule a Newborn Visit. Usually this appointment is booked within 1-2 days of discharge. The pediatrician discharging your baby will tell you when your newborn should be seen for this first appointment. Be sure to also contact your employer and/or your insurance company to have your new baby added onto your policy.
