Newborn Care

Denton Twins 2013_squareOur 18 board-certified pediatricians provide comprehensive newborn care at our Wellness Clinic and Pinnacle Hills Clinic.

At Northwest Arkansas Pediatrics, a separate Wellness Clinic offers a safe environment for infants and well children. Sick children are seen in a separate Acute Care Clinic to keep viruses from spreading to your newborn and other well children.

Choosing a pediatrician

A pediatric hospitalist will care for your newborn at the hospital and coordinate care with the pediatrician of your choice. Your baby’s pediatrician will see them for seven infant wellness visits the first year, and yearly wellness visits up to age 21. Meet our 18 board-certified pediatricians

After you take your newborn home, we provide comprehensive follow-up for your newborn at our Wellness Clinic in Fayetteville or at our Pinnacle Hills Clinic.


Infant Wellness Visits

Infant wellness visits are one of the most important elements of healthcare for babies. Having your baby’s development and health checked regularly gives you peace of mind and makes sure that any concerns are dealt with quickly.

  • Newborn Follow-up appointment at 3 to 5 days
  • 2 weeks
