Pediatric Care

Babies and children have unique healthcare needs. We can help your newborn get off to a healthy start and care for him or her through young adulthood. We provide comprehensive pediatric care, including immunizations, well-baby and well-child visits, physicals for school and sports and other preventive health services. We also provide timely care when your child has a cold, the flu or other acute illness or injury. If your child suffers from asthma, diabetes or another chronic condition, we provide long-term care and management strategies. In short, we focus on your child’s physical, mental and emotional well-being through all stages of development.

What to expect

At regular well-baby and well-child visits, we will conduct a complete physical examination to ensure that your child’s growth and development are in line with milestones. We can recommend an immunization schedule to safeguard against many diseases. The visit provides an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have about your child’s health. During the first two years, we like to see your child frequently. For children three and older, visits are usually scheduled annually, unless you have other concerns.

Additional resources

If we detect a potential problem, we offer access to all the facilities and specialists of Lancaster General Health. If your child needs to be hospitalized, Lancaster General Hospital is the only hospital in the area with an entire family-friendly unit dedicated to the care of infants, children and young adults up to age 17, with full-time hospitalists who are board-certified in pediatrics.
