Our pediatricians' care for all kids
We provide compassionate and skilled medical care for every child, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. Every year, our general pediatrics team cares for thousands of children, which sometimes includes coordinating care with specialists and surgeons across CHoR and the region.
Pediatric services: A family-centered approach to care
Our team provides a number of services for children, with a family-centered approach to care:
It is important to share all medical information with your child's care team, including urgent care visits and care received outside of CHoR or in an emergency room.
