Joseph F. Heavey, FACHE, CEO
Hello and welcome to The Children’s Medical Group! As “the Pediatricians of the Hudson Valley”, we are passionate about what we do and committed to our top priority: providing quality patient care through our core philosophy of patient- and family-centered services.
We know how important – and challenging – it is to make the best health care choices for your children. When you choose The Children’s Medical Group, you are getting a health care team dedicated to medical excellence, and available 7 days a week, 365 days a year. With many offices in Dutchess, Orange and Ulster counties, (and evening and weekend hours in several offices), we continue to expand that accessibility.
I joined The Children’s Medical Group more than 21 years ago after a 25-year career in hospital administration. As the father of 10 and grandfather of 15, we often joke I was hired as CEO to provide an immediate growth spurt for the Practice! But I’ve seen the positive impact of CMG’s approach first-hand in my own family. Our caring philosophy addresses not only development and illness, but the overall health and wellness of your children. It’s our mission to help to create appropriate eating habits and encourage an active lifestyle through “moving” activities, whatever they may be (dance, sports, running, skiing, etc). We also educate our young patients on the importance of proper rest, and avoiding health-harming activities like smoking, alcohol and drugs.
Our dedicated Pediatricians, Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and staff members work tirelessly to ensure that you receive excellent treatment in a comfortable environment. We treat your children like our own, taking tremendous pride in providing exceptional pediatric care and delivering an outstanding experience to every one of our patients (and their families). You can expect to enjoy high levels of service, quality, compassion and respect whenever you deal with The Children’s Medical Group – and we look forward to exceeding your expectations!
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives and entrusting us with your most precious possession: your children and their health needs. We value the confidence and trust you have placed in us and look forward to earning that trust every day.
