Yuma Regional Medical Center understands how time-consuming and costly it can be for parents to travel to Phoenix or Tucson when their child is in need of a pediatric specialist. To help address this situation, YRMC has collaborated with Pediatric Surgeons of Phoenix, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Banner Health Pediatrics and University Physicians Healthcare in Tucson to open the Pediatric Sub-Specialty Clinic.
The clinic makes it possible for specialists to travel to Yuma to see patients, therefore eliminating or reducing the need for families to travel long distances to seek specialized care. Even in cases where surgery may need to be scheduled out-of-town, preoperative and postoperative appointments can be scheduled in Yuma.
Individual clinics are scheduled once or twice a month, based on the specialty. YRMC provides each specialist with a fully equipped office and staff to assist them. Upon referral from the child’s local physician, appointments and billing arrangements are handled directly by each specialist’s main office.
