WATSONVILLE'S BABY GATEWAY 06-14-10 12:15 a.v.

A new pilot program in Watsonville will now ensure that newborns will be given access to a pediatrician and medical insurance.   The new program, known as “Baby Gateway”, starts the minute the baby is born with an adviser from Salud Para La Gente talking with the family to determine their eligibility with Medical, along with helping them choose an assigned primary physician for the new infant.  Baby Gateway is also expected to provide a crash course for parents on how to take care of an infant, including what signs indicate the child needs to be seen by a doctor or be admitted to the emergency room.
