WVU Medicine Children’s pediatricians and nurses are specially trained to care for children from infancy to young adulthood. We’re here for all the typical problems that accompany a child’s growth and development providing routine care for all common pediatric illnesses.
While our primary emphasis is on preventive care, we are also well-equipped to handle complex pediatric conditions. We collaborate with patients’ primary care providers and multiple specialists from WVU Medicine Children’s to make sure your child receives the best possible care.
