A new name, building and location! And yes, a new website too!

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

We are now Robinhood Pediatrics and Robinhood Adolescent Medicine, formerly Forsyth Pediatrics of Robinhood. While we have all “new” everything, we are the same physicians and practitioners who have always cared for your family. Our new facility is all part of our commitment to your child’s healthcare.

The new location is 1350 Whitaker Ridge Drive, behind the Whitaker Square Shopping Center (directly behind Harris-Teeter). Designed and built by Landmark Builders with Triad Design Group, the new building is a state-of-the-art facility that increases our patient care space by 40%.

We started the design of our new medical home with a single desire: to create a place that allows us to offer the best care for children and teens in a spacious, comfortable setting. As a result, our office space is uniquely designed to balance the needs of pediatric and adolescent patients by having a “two-offices-in-one” approach. Interior design choices (designed by Hayden Design) like increased natural light, advanced electrical management and even type of flooring helped us create an environmentally friendly space.

Particularly new to the new building is our dedicated teen office area and designated new teen practice name, Robinhood Adolescent Medicine. Teens appreciate being treated like mature patients. The new space allows teens to “have their own space” – a concept parents can easily relate to! Our goal is designed to help teens develop a responsible attitude toward their personal health. We want to help them transition from childhood to adulthood in the healthiest way possible. The dedicated entrance and teen lobby will help them take ownership and also provide the same privacy of adults.

Additionally, we have designed more spaces for added services such as counselors, nutritionists, lactation support and others. These and other services we look forward to providing our patient families.

We invite you to visit our new facility. Take a look at all things new as we are tremendously excited to offer our patients such a great new home for their pediatric and adolescent care! Yet with all the change, you can still enjoy the expected “treasures” at the end of each visit. Like our great staff, some things will never change!
