Children’s Medical Services serves children from birth to 21 years of age by providing various medical services. Specialty clinics such as orthopedics, seizures, genetics, ENT and cardiac are provided.
Child safety seat program
Children’s 1st helps parents provide their young children with a healthy start in life through linkage/referral to local medical and/or prevention based programs.
Free language assistance available
Any child can be seen at the Children’s Center, from newborn through age 21. Regular check-ups and physical exams are scheduled in advance. However, if your child is ill, he or she will be seen as soon as possible, usually the same day that you call for the appointment. Please call 226-2621 to schedule an appointment.
In addition to the Nurse Practitioners on our staff, services are provided by Physicians and Nurses and Technicians.
What to bring with you
When you bring your child in for an appointment at the Children’s Center, make sure to bring any insurance information you have including your Medicaid card or other insurance card. If you do not have insurance, please bring proof of your current income. This could be a recent pay stub, bank statement, or other document that shows your current household income. This is to help us determine what portion of the charges for your child's visit you may be asked to pay.
Also be sure to bring a copy of the child's current Immunization Record as well as any other Medical Records you may have for the child. This will help us provide the best care possible for your child.
How are services paid for?
Clinical services accept self-pay, Medicaid and private insurance. Most services are provided on a sliding fee scale and eligible participants may receive care at reduced charge (fees are based on family size and income).
