After Hours & Emergencies


IN EXTREME LIFE-THREATENING SITUATIONS, DIAL 911. ¬†ALWAYS TAKE YOUR CHILD TO UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL’S PEDIATRIC EMERGENCY ROOM, directly off of Adams Street at the main Emergency Room. Many insurance companies require referrals for such visits. Please call our referral desk in the morning.


Brighton Hill Pediatrics subscribes to a pediatric after-hours telephone triage service. WE REQUEST THAT THIS SERVICE BE UTILIZED ONLY FOR URGENT OR EMERGENT PROBLEMS. Calls of a more routine nature should be reserved for our usual office hours, as our own nurses have your chart available, allowing for better continuity of care for your child. The phone number for this service is the same as our daytime number: (315) 469-8191.

Please note the hours and availability of the Children’s Urgent Care of Upstate at Community Hospital. They are available Monday through Friday 4 pm to 10 pm, and Saturday/Sunday noon to 8 pm.
