Domenick’s Story: Infant Gets Expert Care for COVID-19 Close to Home in Poughkeepsie
For 8-month-old Domenick, the pediatric unit at Maria Fareri Children’s Healthcare Services at MidHudson Regional Hospital was a lifesaver. When Domenick contracted COVID-19 in January, and his condition worsened, his mom Adrienne was relieved that he could get advanced care without having to travel to Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Valhalla.
“We went to the ER four times, but when he became dehydrated they had to admit him. The staff there was so attentive to his needs. It was really nice having a pediatric unit close to home and not having to travel.’’
