Children’s Health Center celebrates 25 years; open house July 14

July 10, 2012

For 25 years, Northern Arizona’s chronically ill and disabled and abused children have had access to comprehensive medical care close to home through the Children's Health Center (CHC) at Flagstaff Medical Center. The Center is hosting on open house for the community 10 a.m. – noon, Saturday, July 14, at the Center located on FMC’s West Campus, 1215 N. Beaver St. There will be games, activities, information booths, prizes and fun for all ages. For more information, call 928 773-2054.

Individualized services may include evaluation and treatment through medical, rehabilitative and psycho-social intervention. The multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, technicians and support staff. The caring staff knows that excellent care is more than providing medical care; it means providing personalized care and a compassionate environment where children and their families are treated with dignity and respect. 
CHC's pediatric outpatient services include:
• Children's Rehabilitative Services (CRS):  Specialty medical care for chronically ill and disabled children helping them develop to their fullest potential.
• Children's Specialty Clinics: Pediatric outpatient clinics and therapy services bringing pediatric specialists from throughout Arizona to Flagstaff, rather than having these children have to make the long trip to the Phoenix or Tucson areas for medical appointments.
• Safe Child Center (SCC): Provides care for child victims of abuse or neglect, and/or witnesses to major crimes. SCC is dedicated to reducing the stress that children experience as victims or witnesses of crime and to supporting the efforts of law enforcement and child protective services.
• Audiology Services: Provides pediatric hearing and balance services for age newborn through 21. Services for all ages include hearing screenings, hearing aids and repair and dizziness testing, as well as newborn hearing screenings before infants leave the hospital.
