Congratulations on the birth of your newborn baby! We look forward to getting to know you and your infant and partnering with you to raise a healthy child. While you are in the hospital, one of our pediatricians will visit you and the baby daily. In the hospital, your baby may receive the hepatitis B vaccine, a hearing test and have a blood test for a variety of inherited metabolic diseases. Call our office to schedule a first visit for your baby within 2-3 days after hospital discharge. We will discuss with you if we want to see your newborn earlier.
