We know your child’s healthcare needs are diverse and as unique as he or she is. The Division of General and Community Pediatrics provides a wide range of services and programs with this in mind. From assisting new mothers with breastfeeding to addressing social or legal issues that affect a child’s health, we provide the specific care needed to improve the lives of our patients and their families.
The Pediatric Environmental Health and Lead Clinic offers care for children who are ill because of an exposure to a toxic substance in their environment. This clinic is affiliated with a national network of Pediatric Environmental Specialty Units [insert link] that are supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The clinic is located at Cincinnati Children’s main hospital.
As a patient of the PEHLC, your child will be cared for by a team of pediatricians, occupational / environmental medicine physicians, toxicologists, social workers and nurses. We provide telephone consultations for health providers, public health agencies, communities and families regarding the health effects of toxic exposures in children.
The clinic is open 12:30-5 pm Wednesdays. Contact us at 513-636-8556.
Reading aloud to children is one of the most important activities parents can do to improve their children’s development, readiness for school and success with reading. Reach out and Read is a national program dedicated to helping children and parents make reading a key part of their lives. The program helps make books available to parents and children through donations and book distribution. Participating physicians are trained to help parents establish good reading habits with children, and volunteers read aloud to children in our office waiting rooms.
The Center for Infants and Children with Special Needs provides 24/7 inpatient and outpatient management of children and young adults with chronic, complex medical, developmental and mental health conditions. Our staff of highly skilled physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers and nutritionists emphasize care coordination, advocacy and education to improve the quality of life for children and youth with special healthcare needs.
We understand that the family of a child with special needs faces a constant challenge. Finding the most up-to-date information on services and resources can be difficult and time-consuming. Cincinnati Children’s works to ease this challenge through its Special Needs Resource Directory. This comprehensive collection of resources for the Southwest Ohio area is searchable through a convenient online directory. Explore the Special Needs Resource Directory.
