Infancy, childhood and adolescence are incredibly important periods in healthy development. As a parent, you can assist your child during these exciting, and sometimes challenging years, by working closely with your pediatrician to establish healthy behaviors, follow preventive care guidelines and manage common illnesses and injuries.
Primary care pediatricians affiliated with Sutter Medical Foundation offer a full range of services, from newborn care and well-child visits to immunizations. At Sutter Amador Hospital, doctors in our Emergency Department can see your child for emergency care, and we also provide pediatric inpatient care as needed.
Additionally, if your child requires further assessment or more focused care, your pediatrician will partner with a specialist who can oversee your child's specific medical needs. Pediatric specialists throughout the Sutter Health network have advanced training and expertise to diagnose and treat the full range of childhood illnesses and conditions. The pediatric specialist and primary care teams collaborate to provide coordinated, comprehensive care that not only addresses specific medical issues but also supports the overall health of your child's growing mind and body.
Pediatricians across the Sutter Health network consistently earn honors for their quality of care by organizations including the California Association of Physician Groups and the Integrated Healthcare Association.
