Hospital Affiliations



Medical Center

If your child requires sub-specialty care, we may direct you to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center where we are familiar with the sub-specialists and their procedures.   CCMC also has a new satellite office center in Danbury which is fully staffed  by its specialists.

Additionally, Dr. Auerbach trained  at CCMC.   Dr. Soriano and Allene Troy are employees of the hospital’s specialty group, which had partnered with Auerbach Pediatrics to bring them to Newtown in 2019.



For certain situations we will also refer patients to Yale Children’s Hospital given its comprehensive subspecialty care and proximity.

For subspecialty care, both centers have satellite offices in Danbury 

and throughout Fairfield and New Haven counties.



We maintain privileges at Danbury Hospital

 When your child is born, a member of the neonatology department will provide nursery care.  

Please inform the hospital staff and we will be notified.  

When more urgent care is required we rely on the physicians and staff at Danbury hospital. 

We closely follow our children who are admitted to the hospital under the hospitalist service.
