What is Pediatrics?
Building a strong, long-term relationship with a pediatrician is an important way to protect your children’s physical and mental health. A child’s pediatric provider can play a very important role in the overall health and well-being of children of all ages. They are available to treat any immediate health problems that may arise, such as influenza or chickenpox, and to help the family manage any long-term health issues, such as asthma.
The pediatricians at Saint Francis Healthcare System get to know you and your children and expertly monitor their development and unique health needs as they grow — from when they’re little ones to well into their teenage years.
Saint Francis Healthcare System offers services for all ages of pediatrics, including:
- Diagnoses and prescriptions
- Immunizations, including flu shots
- Nutrition and fitness information
- Prompt, personalized care for minor illnesses and injuries
- School and athletic physicals
- Well-child exams
