Pediatrics & Adolescent 

Our Department

Community Health Services’ Department of Pediatrics provides care to children and families, starting from pregnancy and birth, through infancy and childhood, and into the teenage/young adult years. Our staff of pediatricians, pediatric nurse practitioners and  physician assistants are available to assist families with care and advice for all childhood/adolescence illnesses, assist with management of chronic illnesses, such as asthma and provide check-ups and preventive care. Working hand in hand with parents and families, it is our mission to help assure that every child/adolescent reaches his or her full potential; making Hartford’s next generation its strongest and brightest ever.


Our staff of three Pediatricians, and four highly skilled pediatric nurse practitioners will make sure that children, parents and parents-to-be, have access to the (finest) high quality care possible.


Services include:

Complete physicals (by appointment) for infants, school or WIC

Urgent medical care (sick visits)
