They say it takes a village to raise a child, and from my personal experience, “they” deserve a shining gold medal because this sentiment couldn’t be more true. No matter which stage of parenthood you're in, the act of raising tiny humans into bigger humans is an extreme sport — and a team sport at that. Especially when it comes to the health of your children, you can’t settle for anything less than a full team of MVPs — which perfectly describes the wonderful people of Children's Community Pediatrics (CCP).
CCP is part of the nationally recognized Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, and they're all about providing top-notch care for your little ones. They boast services ranging from same-day sick appointments and flu vaccines to nutrition services and a network of Children’s Express Care clinics that provide walk-in, after-hours care by board-certified pediatricians when you need it most.
In case you weren't already convinced of the beauty of CCP, we teamed up with them to list a few of the most important reasons for why they're the best choice for your family:
1. Finding High-Quality Care Is The Epitome Of Convenience
One of the biggest benefits of CCP is their sheer size: They have over 40 locations across western Pennsylvania, making the task of choosing the location that’s most convenient for your family a breeze.
2. They're Always There When You Need Them Most
If your kids are anything like mine, they’ll probably need pediatric care at the most unexpected times, which is why CCP offers several convenient services that are available to you day or night. In addition to same-day sick appointments, they also offer walk-in service during normal business hours. For after-hours care, you can visit a Children’s Express Care clinic for walk-in services catered toward minor injuries or illness. One more great option is their 24/7 nurse advice line, which can be accessed by calling your preferred location to speak with the on-duty nurse at any time.
3. They Offer Behavioral Health Services Within The Primary Care Office
Behavioral health services needs arise for many families, and often they are unanticipated. CCP offers Behavioral Health Services within their normal pediatric offices, without the need to locate or visit a separate clinic. Their staff of pediatricians, psychologists, therapists, and psychiatrists work to help families improve their quality of life both at home and within their communities.
4. They Support Your Family At Every Stage
From Baby Basic classes and lactation consulting catered to new moms, to sports physicals and care coordination that help your bigger kids get the professional care they need, CCP is well-equipped to offer you backup throughout your parenting journey. And that’s important, because you’ll need a whole lot of it. (Trust me.)
5. They’re Professional, Courteous, And Kind
In the middle of scheduling pediatrician appointments, shuffling kids to the office, and constantly supporting your child’s health needs — whether well or sick — the last thing you want to deal with is feeling uncomfortable with your pediatric office. CCP’s helpfulness and constant professionalism really make them stand out from the pack, and they'll go above and beyond to put you at ease, work with your schedule, and offer your family the personalized attention you all deserve.
