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, Eureka Health & Wellness Center has a dedicated Pediatric Department and the Kids Express Clinic, an express urgent need clinic.

Eureka Health & Wellness Center Pediatric Department

Open Door Pediatric Services center 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.

Kids Express: Urgent Express Care for Kids

Kids Express is staffed with a pediatrician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner as well as specially trained nurses and medical assistants.

Kids Express is not an emergency room, but a convenient care option for parents. When a child is sick or hurt, parents want care and reassurance right away. If your regular doctor can’t see your child for a day or two, or if you don’t have a regular doctor, that’s what we are here for.

For more information call the Kids Express line at (707) 269-7057.
