We offer comprehensive pediatric care for infants, children, teens, and young adults up to age 18.

Children's Health

At Christ Community Health, we believe children are a blessing from the Lord, and that a healthy life starts with a healthy childhood. We take joy in providing comprehensive, high-quality primary health care to children and their families. In addition to traditional pediatric care, we also offer assistance to families with children who have developmental, behavioral, or mental health needs.

 

Well-Child Visits

To ensure your child is meeting the appropriate developmental milestones, routine visits, called well-child visits, are scheduled from birth through the teen years. These visits help keep your child healthy. Soon after your child is born, it’s important to schedule regular checkups with your Primary Care Provider (PCP).

Our goal at Christ Community Health is to develop a positive relationship with your child and family through regular well-child visits, and to create a caring environment where they feel safe and you feel confident that they are getting excellent pediatric care.

Well-child visits are typically scheduled frequently for the first 2.5 years of life, then every year from ages 3-18.

If your child is a new patient at Christ Community Health, please bring their immunization records to their school physical visit.

 

Vaccines & Immunizations

Christ Community Health offers complete immunization services for children. Our providers will help you understand which vaccines and immunizations are recommended to help your children stay healthy. Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization and can even be deadly. If you have any questions, we’re here to help! Contact your care team here (link to contact page).

Recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention can be found here: CDC Vaccines & Immunizations Recommendations

Same-day Sick Appointments

Your child’s health is our priority. If your child has symptoms such as a cold, cough, sore throat, vomiting, a fever, or sprain, we will do our best to see you on the same day you call.

 

School & Sports Physicals

We offer Head Start, school and sports physicals for children. A basic physical is a great way to begin a relationship with a primary care provider at Christ Community Health. As a Patient Centered Medical Home, we partner with you to provide the best care possible for you and your family.

If your child is a new patient at Christ Community Health, please bring their immunization records to their school physical visit.

Behavioral Health

All parents want to raise healthy, happy children who are eager to learn and grow. However, some children develop social, behavioral, or functional symptoms that may indicate a deeper problem. Christ Community Health is here to help. We approach your child’s health holistically and offer compassionate treatment for issues such as:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Behavioral concerns, such as tantrums and aggression
  • Behavioral feeding disorders
  • Communication, speech and language concerns
  • Hyperactivity
  • Intellectual deficits
  • Learning difficulties
  • Oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder
