Safe, effective pediatric care in Star Valley
When your child is sick, or in need of urgent medical attention, the last thing you want to do is travel a long distance for care. We understand emotions run high, and life becomes more complicated when a child is admitted to the hospital. That’s why we are committed to family-centered care, and helping make this difficult time as easy as possible.
Star Valley Medical Center is proud to offer access to high-quality pediatric care, close to your home and support network.
Outstanding preventive care services for babies, toddlers, and youths up to age 18
Raising healthy children takes a community of caregivers, teachers, friends and family. We are proud to be a part of this community and make a positive impact in the lives of children. Our team approach to preventive care addresses both the physical well-being of children and youths, as well as a broad range of psychosocial issues and stresses related to treatment, coping with illness, and maintaining optimal health.
Depending on their needs, children at Star Valley Medical Center receive exemplary care from a variety of professional support staff, including:
- Physical therapists
- Speech therapists
- Respiratory therapists
- Social workers
- Nutritionists and dietitians
Top two benefits of well-child preventive care visits
We want your child to be healthy, inside and out. To lower your child’s risk of infectious disease, we provide a safe immunization schedule that begins at two months. We are also passionate about giving the youngest members of our community helpful nutrition and safety education so that they can self-manage at home, camp, and school.
- Tracking growth and development
Each child is unique and grows at their own pace. The certified pediatricians at Star Valley Medical Center carefully track your child’s growth milestones (e.g., height, weight, head circumference) to ensure they are growing well, and along their growth curve. Regular well-child visits are also a wonderful opportunity to discuss any concerns about your child’s development, including milestones, social behaviors, and learning.
