Our pediatric team provides comprehensive primary and preventative care for children, including well child care, sick child care, newborn care, circumcisions, immunizations, school physicals and behavioral health evaluations.
When a child needs to see a specialist, we strongly believe that they and their parents should not have to travel a long distance to receive this specialized care. That is why we make pediatric subspecialty care available right here at Yuma Regional Medical Center.
- Diabetes Education
Children who have eligible chronic conditions can receive the specialized care they need through YRMC’s Children’s Rehabilitative Services (CRS) program.

- Behavioral Health

We understand that being admitted to the hospital can be a scary time for you and your child. We want to assure you that our pediatrics team will do everything possible to reduce any anxiety you may have. Since spending family time together is such an important part of the healing process, we welcome parents to stay in the hospital with their child overnight. And during those times when work and family responsibilities may prevent you from being at the hospital, you can take comfort in knowing that our caring and compassionate staff will be there for your child around the clock.
If your baby is born prematurely or with a medical condition, you’ll be reassured to know that our neonatal specialists are ready to provide the advanced level of care your newborn will need. It is also important for you to know that your baby will be cared for in an environment specially designed to nurture development and growth. Yuma Regional Medical Center’s 20-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is licensed as a Level III NICU by the State of Arizona, which means that it is capable of caring for the smallest and most medically challenged newborn babies.
