The Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases offers an extensive range of services - including infection prevention, diagnosis, and treatment - for children and families throughout Suffolk County.
Inpatient services include more than 500 consultations each year on all types of infectious diseases. Consultations occur in Stony Brook’s Pediatric Acute Care Unit, Hematology-Oncology Unit, Burn Unit, Pediatric Emergency Department, Newborn Nursery, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).
On an outpatient basis, the division provides more than 1,000 consultations a year, not including the clinical trials programs. Patients are frequently seen for tickborne infections, complex acute infections of all types, management of intravenous antibiotics, pre-travel counseling, and hospital follow-up, among other reasons. For our pediatric patients living with HIV we provide ongoing, comprehensive, coordinated and family-centered services including PrEP and PEP, HIV specialist medical care and case management, nutritional assessment, education, crisis intervention and psychosocial support.
Our extensive clinical trials program includes studies conducted on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. Past trials include evaluations of new vaccines, novel antibiotics and new diagnostics.
Additionally, a weekly Travel Medicine Clinic is offered for children traveling abroad.
