Your Safety is Our Top Priority
With COVID-19 cases on the rise in Arizona, we know you may have concerns about leaving your home right now. Phoenix Children’s is making it safer for you to access the health care your child needs. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, we have safely cared for thousands of children who needed to be treated in person. Your child may need in-person care, too.
We follow all CDC guidelines, which include visitor restrictions, universal masking, symptom screening, enhanced cleaning procedures and using telehealth where appropriate. We're also providing an extra layer of safety by staggering patient visits and treatment schedules to allow for social distancing.
Phoenix Children’s has resumed services, treatments and surgical procedures across all of our specialty areas. These services promote healing, relieve pain and dramatically improve quality of life: This care should not wait.
If your child missed a specialist appointment or procedure due to COVID-19, call 602-933-KIDS (5437) to connect with your provider and determine next steps.

Many families have stayed away from the doctor’s office and missed important preventive and primary care visits. Now is the time to schedule an appointment.
- Vaccines: Vaccines are critical to defend against dozens of serious conditions that threaten children. With vaccine rates declining amid the pandemic, the CDC warns that risks of measles and other vaccine-preventable illnesses are increasing. Parents are strongly encouraged to move forward with scheduled immunizations.
- Annual well checks: During this visit, your pediatrician performs a complete examination to ensure your child is developing properly – and to make a plan for extra care if needed. The American Academy of Pediatrics is stressing the importance of well checks and immunizations right now.
- Sick visits: Many injuries and illnesses get worse without treatment. If you believe your child should be seen by a provider, but you are nervous about leaving home, please contact your pediatrician’s office to talk about your child’s health issue and determine the right course of action.
