Kids get sick at the most inconvenient times! And, with 70% of pediatrician’s offices open only during standard business hours, parents have had to turn to convenience care clinics and urgent care centers for treatment.
But do parents sacrifice quality of care for convenience?
Children are not little adults and can have unique medical issues. Because pediatricians represent only a small percentage of the urgent care workforce, most convenience care centers are staffed with practitioners who are less experienced treating kids.
Enter the new pediatric medical home model…411 Pediatrics & After Hours Care, offering health care for children 7 days a week, including evenings!
My vision was to build a health care practice for children that would offer what families today need— all under one roof—because kids (and parents) deserve the right type of care at the right time.
Besides general wellness care, 411 Pediatrics after-hours care treats children’s minor illnesses and injuries by pediatric-trained specialists, and offers secure web-based and text communications for families.
And any family can bring their children to our office and we will coordinate their care with their existing pediatrician.
