Inpatient Care

A recent partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH) has allowed for the expansion of expert pediatric inpatient care.

Nationwide Children’s pediatric hospitalists are familiar faces in the community who provide years of local experience. These skilled physicians work closely with FMC’s clinical staff to offer comprehensive, advanced care in a variety of hospital settings. From the Maternity Department to the Emergency Department, you can expect your child to receive the best pediatric care possible.

COVID-19 in Children and Teens

Navigating COVID-19 concerns can be challenging for adults, but is even more difficult when it comes to children and teens. While, in general, children are at a lower risk of contracting or becoming severely ill with COVID-19, it is still important to understand symptoms of the virus in young people and what to do if your child is sick.

Primary Care

Your life is busy. Having one provider who can care for your entire family, from birth to adulthood, makes scheduling annual check-ups a lot more convenient, and gives your child the opportunity to form a lasting relationship through the years with their provider.
