At LCH, we follow the Bright Futures guidelines, which reflect the core beliefs that every child deserves to be healthy, prevention works, families matter, and health is everyone’s business.

Our pediatric providers have a passion for creating a supportive environment for children to grow up happy and healthy. We provide primary, preventative, and acute care services for children, including age-appropriate immunizations and in-house mental health specialists.  Our Family Fitness Program is targeted to kids with high Body Mass Index (BMI), helping them to develop healthy habits to last a lifetime.

In addition to primary, preventative, and acute care services for children, LCH offers a free dental fluoride varnish from six months (or the first tooth eruption) to five years during primary development. LCH’s Dental Center ensures that kids can receive continuing dental care as they grow.

We accept CHIP, Medicaid, Medicare, and most private insurance. Insurance or no insurance, LCH will take care of you. We evaluate everyone to determine eligibility for discounted services. Our sliding scale fees are based on your income and family size. We don’t turn anyone away due to inability to pay.

The expansion of  our pediatric services allows for all members of a family to receive health care at LCH. Let LCH be the medical home for your entire family.

    Why do you like working at LCH?

    It has long been a passion of mine to help those most in need and I like that LCH focuses on culturally appropriate and equal care regardless of insurance status. The strong community ties, integrated primary/behavioral health model, and all of the social services and education at LCH are exactly what is needed to decrease health disparities and improve population health.

    What is your most important health tip for patients?

    I think the single most important health tip for anyone, not only our patients, is to get up and move! So many of the health problems we face today can be averted with just 30 minutes of moderate exercise each day.
