A man has been charged after allegedly snatching a newborn baby from a hospital in Sydney's west.

The 28-year-old man allegedly left Blacktown Hospital on Friday with the baby and two women, aged 27 and 47.

A 40-year-old male was knocked to the ground and suffered head injuries but the car did not stop, prompting an immediate call to police.

The baby was found at a Blacktown medical centre and is now in state care.

He was refused bail and will appear before Port Macquarie Local Court on Sunday.
