Our approach to pediatric care
Your newborn doesn’t come with a manual, unfortunately. It’s up to parents to make sure their children are safe, happy and healthy. SIU Medicine can help. With more than 300 health care providers dedicated to healing patients and making communities healthier, we’re well-equipped to care for your children.
As an academic medical community, SIU Medicine is home to providers who aren’t just skilled diagnosticians and healers. They’re also training the next generation of specialists while conducting research that has the potential to change children’s lives and restore hope. From caring for the tiniest babies in a state-of-the-art NICU helping children facing food insecurities to treating children with advanced cancers and blood disorders, pediatricians, neonatologists, family medicine doctors, child psychiatrists and pediatric surgeons collaborate to give your tiny human the most compassionate care, the most treatment options and the best outcomes.
