Quality Pediatric Care in South Boston and the Seaport neighborhood

The Department of Pediatrics at South Boston Community Health Center serves all of Boston and beyond. The Department includes pediatricians, nurse practitioners, nurses and medical assistants all dedicated to providing comprehensive primary care to your children from the time they are newborns until their 22nd birthday. This includes routine physicals, same day visits for urgent problems and follow up appointments for chronic problems such as asthma, as well as telephone advice for a sick or injured child.

We take a holistic approach to caring for your child by evaluating his or her growth and development, making sure their immunizations are up to date, counseling on healthy lifestyles and assessing how well they’re doing in school and with their peers. Referrals are made to specialists as needed.

A pediatrician, nurse practitioner or experienced pediatric nurse is available after hours for telephone advice.
