PM Pediatrics, an award-winning provider of after-hours pediatric urgent care, has announced that its newest location is set to open in Livingston, NJ on Monday, October 1.

The 6,000-square-foot jungle-themed practice marks the company’s fifth site and its first New Jersey location. Dr. Michael Bachman, New Jersey Regional Medical Director for PM Pediatrics, will also serve as the Medical Director of the new Livingston office, overseeing all medical operations for the practice. In addition to the northern New Jersey site, PM Pediatrics has four locations in New York — on Long Island, in Westchester and Queens.

The announcement of the October 1 launch comes on the heels of the company’s placement on Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500|5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. For the second consecutive year, PM Pediatrics has made the prestigious list, with a reported three-year revenue growth of 224 percent (2008-2011). PM Pediatrics ranks #101 in the Health category, #89 among all New York metro area honorees, and #1365 overall of the 5,000 companies nationwide who made the list.

Based on the Inc. list, PM Pediatrics is one of the fastest-growing health care providers in the country, in addition to being the only pediatric urgent care provider to make the 2012 list.

Every PM Pediatrics practice is staffed by pediatric emergency specialists who provide specialized care and treatment for a broad array of illnesses and injuries including asthma, fever and other infections, dehydration, sprains and fractures, wounds requiring stitches and much more. Each office has on-site digital X-ray producing high resolution images that are easily sent to a patient’s primary care physician via CD-ROM or electronically. In addition, all locations feature a comprehensive laboratory which is capable of performing rapid blood, urine and chemistry workups.

PM Pediatrics offices are conveniently located and uniquely themed, providing caregivers and children with a health care experience that is unlike any other. The distinctly designed practices create a kid-friendly environment featuring TVs in every exam room. To learn more, visit www.pmpediatrics.com.

 

PM Pediatrics launches fellowship program


By Queens Courier Staff | editorial@queenscourier.com

PM Pediatrics, an award-winning provider of after-hours pediatric urgent care, has announced the launch of its new Pediatric Urgent Care Fellowship Program. The one year program includes supervised clinical training at all PM Pediatrics sites, as well as rotations in orthopedics, plastic surgery, dermatology, adolescent medicine, ENT, ophthalmology, toxicology, emergency medical services and radiology.

Dr. Wendy Graae has been appointed fellowship director for PM Pediatrics, overseeing all aspects of the program. She completed a Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) fellowship at Montefiore Medical Center and served as the PEM fellowship director at New York Medical College from 1995 to 1998. Graae joined PM Pediatrics in 2006 and has worked as an urgent care physician at the Mamaroneck, NY site.

“We believe that there is a crucial need for a fellowship of this sort, which is designed to bridge some gaps in residency training and better prepare pediatricians for the broad range of cases typically seen in an urgent care practice,” said Dr. Jeffrey Schor, owner of PM Pediatrics. “Dr. Graae already plays an important role in the success of PM Pediatrics, both clinically and as a passionate educator to our other physicians, to our patients and to the medical community. She will be the perfect leader for this endeavor.”
