  • Why it’s important to seek out pediatric services

    To put it simply, children’s health is not the same as adult health. Children don’t even have the same number of bones, after all! (Fun fact: Babies have about 300 bones at birth. Some fuse together during childhood, leaving adults with 206 bones.)

    At every stage and age, we have unique and distinct health needs. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing services that are specifically catered to the unique needs of children and their development.

    Every provider at Kentucky Children’s Hospital has specialized training in both an area of expertise and in children’s health, allowing them to keep both in mind when prescribing care.

    In addition, children and their families have access to truly comprehensive and collaborative care through our pediatric service offerings. We work together on a multidisciplinary basis to ensure access to additional diagnostic testing or expertise is quick and easy to access, and we offer several specialty clinics and specialty services to meet our patients’ needs.
