Open Door Pediatric Services

Open Door Community Health Centers is sorry to hear about the closing of the Eureka Pediatrics practice. We have felt a partnership over the years and have pride in the great care the children of our area have received from Eureka Pediatrics and Open Door providers.

Open Door is pleased to welcome several of Eureka Pediatrics former providers to Open Door Community Health Centers.

Our hope is that their Eureka Pediatrics patients can continue care with these providers at their new Open Door locations. We will be able to schedule appointments for dates after January 1, 2018.

Open Door also already employs many providers who are enthusiastic and trained about caring for children who might need a new provider.

Please see our list of Open Door providers now accepting patients.

Dr. Dittmer and Patient

Almost all Open Door locations have doctors and advance practice clinicians who serve infants, children, and teens, carrying out routine health screenings, immunizations and boosters, well-child examinations and treatment for acute, simple, complex and chronic conditions for established patients.

In addition, Del Norte Community Health Center, Humboldt Open Door Clinic, in Arcata, and Eureka Health & Wellness Center have dedicated pediatricians.

Eureka Health & Wellness Center also has an express, urgent need clinic in the evenings, Monday through Thursday, and Saturdays from 9am – 12:30pm.
