New pediatric facility opens in New Hartford


NEW HARTFORD — Blooming Pediatric & Family Nurse Practitioners, PLLC will host a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25, at their new office at 1 Oxford Crossing in New Hartford. Press and the public are invited.

The Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce, the Rome Area Chamber of Commerce and the New Hartford Chamber of Commerce will be co-sponsoring the event.

Blooming Pediatrics is a collaboration between Michal Hovak, FNP-C, MSN, BSN and Coral Montana, PNP-C, MSN, CLC. The practice will focus on well care, sick care, and immunizations for children from birth to 21 years of age, as well as special focus on newborns and lactation counseling.

Parents are welcomed and encouraged to schedule a meet and greet with the providers.

The new office is designed to create a comforting and calming experience for young patients, with themed examination rooms and plenty of activities to keep children and parents occupied during visits. “Our goal is to remove the fear factor from doctor visits,” said Michal Hovak. “We want the experience to be one the child actually looks forward to.”

Blooming Pediatrics office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and offers after-hour on-call care. The practice is currently accepting new patients.
