The Pediatrics department within Eureka Community Health & Wellness Center is centered around pediatric care for children. Routine health screenings, immunizations and boosters, well-child examinations and treatment for acute, simple, complex and chronic conditions are offered for all established patients. Young children should be seen often for immunizations and well-child examinations (our pediatricians can explain the best schedule of visits). Older children should be seen for routine check-ups every year.
Additional services include referral to behavioral health counseling and support, basic nutritional counseling, reproductive health services and other services available within the Open Door Health Systems. Referral to and coordination with specialists are provided as needed, with follow-up care. The Pediatrics department also provides follow-up care after hospital stays. Public or private coverage is typically available for children; we will assist you in determining eligibility for Medi-Cal, Medicare, Healthy Families, Family PACT and other programs. Those without insurance are eligible for discounts based on income and ability to pay. We also accept most private insurance.
