Pediatrics

From well-baby visits to unexpected sports injuries and everything in between, our specialized physicians care for babies, children and adolescents to help you navigate the little and not-so-little bumps of childhood.

We recognize the special needs of children with experienced staff that specialize in high-quality care of infants and children. Working with children in a health care setting requires patience and a good bedside manner, as children can be easily worried or scared about being in the hospital. All of our pediatric medical staff take the extra time and consideration with our youngest patients, helping to ease their fears and answer their questions at a level they will understand.

We are family centered and our main goal is to support you, your child and your family members through any difficult time, whether it is an illness or injury. For more information please call (641) 236-2382.

Pediatric Appointments 

For your child's pediatric appointments, we encourage you to continue well-child visits that include vaccinations – these are important for newborns and young children to help keep them and others safe. Contact your clinic before arriving to ensure you're aware of any additional processes put in place for your visit.
