Child Protection

When there’s a question of someone hurting a child…

Sometimes children act in ways that suggest that someone has mistreated them.  Or they may have an injury that raises the question of abuse.  Some children talk about something abusive that has happened to them.  In any of these situations, experienced care can help.

Designed for children and adolescents…

The child protection team includes specialists in medical assessment and social service who can help with diagnosis and management.  Our team knows which community supports are available to assist with each family’s concerns.

In times of need…

A team that can help with these complicated problems and your fears while collaborating with other pediatric specialists and your pediatrician to provide exemplary care.  All close to home.

Useful Resources…
