Pediatrics

Choosing a pediatrician is an important part of preparing for a new baby or finding a new doctor for your child. There are many things to consider including a pediatrician’s training and experience.

Christiana Care pediatricians offer the expertise, compassion, and medical leadership so you can feel confident that your child receives the best care.

In addition, we have pediatric specialists in psychology, psychiatry, radiology, neurology and infectious disease. We also participate in clinical pediatric research. Through our active research program, we have made extraordinary contributions to the understanding of childhood diseases and the development of measures for prevention and treatment.

To ensure that our patients have access to the diagnostic and treatment programs we partner with the state in the Child Watch Program. Experience has shown that early intervention can profoundly impact a child’s skills and abilities, and can provide the family with the skills necessary to support improvement in the child’s condition. As key partners with Child Development Watch in New Castle County, we work with a variety of agencies to provide early intervention services in order to have an early impact on each child’s outcome.

We provide a range of inpatient and outpatient medical care for children and teens including:

  • Inpatient pediatric hospitalization.
  • Neonatal Intensive Care.
  • Well baby services.
  • Lactation services.
  • Routine exams and vaccinations.
  • Sick visits.
  • Screenings for lead poisoning.
  • Risk assessments for tuberculosis.
  • Care for chronic illnesses, including allergies, asthma and sick-cell anemia.
  • Care for physical disabilities and neurological problems.
  • Referrals to the Child Development Watch and psychological staff.
