Located within Meeker Family Health Center the Pediatrics department features pint-sized tools, a special waiting area and private rooms dedicated to our smallest patients. In addition to the convenience and caring we’ve always provided, you can now feel even more at home and comfortable when your children need quality medical treatment, follow-up appointments or preventative care.
Additionally, Pioneers has a direct link to some of our state’s leading pediatric specialists through our partnership with HealthONE’s Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in Denver. While our team regularly networks with a variety of specialists to coordinate the best care for each patient, an alliance with Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children allows us to be prepared to seamlessly address rare, complex or life-threatening illness. Should we discover a serious disease or be faced with pediatric trauma, you can rest assured your family will have a direct link to the most advanced pediatric care and resources available.
Our doctors and mid-level providers deliver complete family medical care, and our team is there should you or your child need urgent or emergency care after-hours or at the hospital.
