Expert clinicians, state-of-the-art technology and family-friendly resources.

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. We collaborate with highly regarded medical facilities around the state to arrange for specialists to travel here on a regular basis, or at times provide telemedicine services for our pediatric patients. Evaluations, treatment and post-operative visits can all be accommodated here, and the number of sub-specialties we provide to our local pediatric community continues to expand.


Our specialists provide a full spectrum of services for your child’s healthcare needs.
