Children's Health

We believe that helping your child achieve and maintain good health — as an infant, growing child or teen — is key to our mission of improving lives.

With excellent pediatric care, your child receives the best start for a healthy lifetime. Finding the right doctor for your newborn or growing child is one of the most important ways of ensuring a lifetime of good health. Regularly scheduled exams and vaccinations are important precautions to help prevent disease.

All of our physicians are board certified and are committed to partnering with you in your child’s care and development. Two types of physicians-pediatricians and family medicine practitioners- have training and expertise in treating children. Or you can choose a nurse practitioner to provide care for your child.

To find a pediatrician near you, call 215-481-MEDI.
