Pediatrics at UPMC in North Central Pa.

Comprehensive Pediatric Care

At UPMC, our pediatricians, advanced practice professionals, and nurses, are here to care for and meet the needs of your child. We will do everything we can to make your child's visit with us as comfortable and pleasant as possible. From well and sick child visits to care for illness and injuries, our team of skilled pediatricians are dedicated to helping children of all ages regain health and optimal wellness.

UPMC Pediatric Care offers complete healthcare services for children and adolescents from birth to 21 years of age.

Well-Child Visits

It is important to promote good health to developing children. During well-child visits, we will discuss important issues for your child and your family. We can answer questions you have about topics including:

  • Nutrition
  • Education
  • Safety
  • Family relationships
  • Discipline
  • Child care
  • Behavior(s)
  • Child development

We provide immunizations, or shots, your children need to prevent serious illnesses such as whooping cough, measles and hepatitis. If your child received immunizations somewhere else, please bring a record of those shots with you to your appointment.


Walk-in appointments are available for sick children or for issues that cannot wait. We will try to get your child seen as soon as possible. Walk-in appointments are available during our regular office hours.

At some of our offices, extended hours are also available for appointments after our regular office hours.

Who Will See My Child?

Each child and family are assigned a doctor or advanced practice professional. Whenever possible, the same health care professional will see your child for scheduled and sick visits. However, if your doctor or advanced practice professional is unavailable, another member of the team will see your child.

24/7 Nurse Triage

If you need advice, you can call your child's doctor's office at any time of the day or night, any day of the week, and you will be connected to nurse triage if after hours.
