Our pediatrics providers focus on the growth and development of children as well as the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of childhood diseases. They care for the child's physical, emotional and social health from infancy through adolescence. Our specially trained providers see all manner of issues, while also providing:
- Education, advice and guidance to parents and children.
- Well-baby examinations to evaluate general health.
- Immunizations and vaccinations.
- Treatment for short- and long-term illnesses and diseases.
The pediatric team works to establish long-term relationships with the families of our youngest population while also providing the best care possible. They join in community efforts to prevent and solve problems with children's healthcare as well as serve as advocates for our most vulnerable population.
Val Verde Regional Medical Center (VVRMC) is also pleased to offer a variety of special services for pediatric patients in a local setting:
Pediatric Urological Services
Our Urology Clinic can diagnose and treat many pediatric urological issues. Further, if your child requires surgery that has to be done outside of the area, follow-up care can be done here at home, requiring fewer long trips as your youngster recovers.
Pediatric Services for Special Needs Children
Our pediatric healthcare providers can offer services for children with special needs. If your child has a specialist outside of the area, the providers here in Del Rio can interact with them to develop an individualized plan to optimize their care.
The Rehabilitation Department Offers Therapies for Children
The Rehabilitation Department at VVRMC offers physical, speech and occupational therapy for pediatric patients.
