General Pediatrics

Children aren't miniature adults. They need comprehensive, compassionate care in a family-focused environment like that offered by pediatric specialists at Children's of Mississippi, home to the state's only hospital devoted to sick and injured children of all ages.

Our pediatrics program includes general pediatricians, specialty care, and support services for both the hospital and outpatient clinics, providing a continuum of care for the state's youngest residents. Special surgical and critical care facilities at the hospital are equipped with state-of-the-art and age-appropriate technology to provide young patients with the best chance for a healthy life.

Our child-friendly approach to health care provides a setting not only to heal, but also to play, learn, and grow. Pediatric specialists apply this philosophy to healthcare, whether they are helping a premature newborn grow stronger or a teenager learning to manage diabetes.
