Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in children’s health.

Best childrens and pediatric hospital

From the lab to the clinic, we never stop finding answers for families.

REMINDER: With a high transmission rate of COVID-19 in the community, it’s now more important than ever to fill out your pre-clinic visit screening questionnaire. Before you show up for your in-person hospital visit please:

Make sure to notify the clinic if you have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19 before your visit. Understanding your symptoms and exposure to COVID-19 helps staff prepare for your visit.

  • If this is an urgent visit, we will make sure that you will be seen.
  • If it is not an urgent visit, your appointment may be rescheduled or moved to a virtual visit appointment for the safety of our staff and other patients.

Thank you for helping to keep us all safe!
