Children and newborns have bodies that are quite different from adults. They have different health issues and are affected differently than adults by illness and disease.
In addition to the specialized care children and newborns in our community require, we provide comprehensive pediatric and newborn health care. This means our youngest patients receive the unique emotional and compassionate care they need to help them through the challenges of illness, testing and treatment.
Our team of board-certified pediatricians and nurses and staff are highly experienced in providing the quality care your infant or newborn requires.

Care for your newborn is a team effort. You and the LSFHC health care professionals work together to provide family-centered care for your newborn. We provide you with health care services before, during and after delivery and we also provide education, information and counseling to help you provide the care your newborn will need when you take her/him home.
Newborns require lots of care and attention and can create all types of concerns for new parents. When you have questions or worries about your newborn, we are ready to help. Besides our convenient regular hours, we have an after-hours walk-in clinic for those sudden problems. We want all the children in our community to get a good start on a healthy life. Schedule checkups at any of our locations, and together, we’ll provide your newborn with quality health care she or he deserves.
