Pediatrics & Complex Primary Care

at the Charlie Mitchell Children’s Center

The Charlie Mitchell Children’s Center is a Rural Health Center offering family-focused primary care  to children age 15 and under with acute and chronic medical conditions. The clinic is located on the Valley Children’s Hospital campus. Doctors at the clinic also treat patients’ siblings so that brothers and sisters can all receive medical care from the same practice. We bring an interdisciplinary approach to patient care. In addition to board certified pediatricians, the practice is staffed with registered dieticians, social workers, nurses, a pharmacist, a case manager and a phlebotomist.

Clinical psychologists and Child Life specialists are available by referral. The interdisciplinary plan includes management of care, ordering of tests, immunizations, administration of medication, scheduling and follow up of appointments, specimen collection and processing, and coordination and/or referral of appointments for other subspecialists and allied health professionals. Language needs are addressed by bilingual staff and hospital interpreters.

Our mission is to provide an outpatient and inpatient medical home for children with Complex Medical Problems where continuity of care is provided and coordinated by a dedicated team of medical, nursing, pharmaceutical and ancillary staff members. Medical care is provided in a manner that is compassionate, accessible, effective, efficient, and culturally conscious.
