What is pediatric care?
Children’s bodies and minds grow at an amazing rate. In the first year of life, a newborn may grow from seven pounds and 20 inches tall into a toddler whose weight has increased by 200 percent and length by 50 percent. While children might not grow and develop as quickly as this through the rest of childhood, they still continue to change physically, mentally and emotionally. Through it all, from infancy to the teen years, parents must make sure their child gets regular checkups and is cared for when sick or hurt.
Baptist Health pediatricians care for children of all ages and provide guidance to families. To find a Baptist Health pediatrician or to request an appointment, call toll-free at 1-888-227-8478 or click here to request an appointment online.
