Call Us Today for Over 76 years of Pediatric Health Care for Children!
As a pediatric health care clinic, we are focused on acute and preventive care for any child served by our clinic. Preventive care is very important in assessing a child's health when they are not ill. This allows our nurse practitioners the opportunity to determine if the child has any delays in development, nutritional risks, or other at risk conditions.
To encourage our clients to understand the importance of preventive health visits, we have participated in the National Reach Out and Read program for children 6 months to 5 years of age. This program gives each child a book at the end of their preventive health visit to encourage the joy of reading and to increase the literacy rate in Lubbock.
Our childrens health clinic has gone one step further to secure funds to give a book to all children up to the age of twelve when they have their preventive health visit. This program has enabled us to help children in their early years develop a love of reading and establish a home age appropriate library in their home.
Acute care and chronic disease management are also important services we provide our clients. Being accessible to families with sick children is a primary focus of our clinic staff. By having a walk-in clinic for sick visits, we are able to see more sick children.
This has allowed us to see the sickest children first. Chronic disease management is critical for a child and family to understand the disease process, triggers of the disease, and the purpose of prescribed medication to control the disease process.
