Our Physicians

doctor with child, extended and medical care

Children's Care Hospital & School has a medical staff of over 70 pediatricians and pediatric sub-specialists that care for our children. Many of the physicians hold clinics on-site in order to provide optimal care within our environment without children having to be transported to appointments at their clinics. The medical staff participates in Children's Care Hospital & School quality initiatives and review processes.
