The general pediatrics team at Blank Children's Hospital offers a primary care office and medical home for patients from birth to 21 years. Our pediatricians provide care that includes routine well-child care, diagnosis and treatment for new patients and general pediatric consultations by referral. As part of the national Reach Out and Read program, our patients (from 6 months to 5 years old) receive a free book upon each well-child visit.
We are also a residency teaching clinic, which means medical students and residents work alongside experienced staff pediatricians as part of their training.
