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 up to age 21 with acute and chronic medical conditions. The clinic is located on the Valley Children’s main campus in Madera. 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 nurses, phlebotomists, a pharmacist, a case manager and a social worker.
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 a 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.
