These children may suffer from infections, such as bone and joint infections, which require long-term monitoring.

Your Child's Own Team of Experts

Each day, our nurse practitioners and doctors work collaboratively with other pediatric experts to solve complicated illnesses and conditions — many of which were once considered difficult to diagnose and treat.

Our infectious disease specialists are available to support your child's pediatrician and the other members of your child's health care team. In addition, our patients and families benefit from the support of the hospital's superior pediatric intensive care specialists, child life specialists, nurses, nutrition experts and volunteers.

Besides providing the highest level of clinical care, our experts are committed to furthering the knowledge of infectious disease through education and clinical research. Our section is home to a nationally accredited infectious disease fellowship, considered one of the foremost in the country.

Part of your child's treatment may involve anti-infective medicines. Our team is particularly skilled at managing antibiotic-resistant infections, a growing issue in the medical community. Using treatment plans that involve newer antibiotics, we can treat many of these conditions safely and effectively.
