The Children’s Medical Group was formed in 1997 by the merger of two successful pediatric practices. The original groups, Pediatric and Adolescent Associates founded in 1932, and the Hudson Valley Pediatric Group founded in 1952, have had a long and distinguished history of caring for the region’s children.
We pride ourselves on Clinical Excellence, Accessibility, and Availability. We are open evenings, weekends, and holidays!
