The Infectious Disease Practice at Valley Children’s provides inpatient and outpatient evaluation and management of children with suspected or proven infectious diseases. Our physicians are all board certified in Pediatric Infectious Diseases. Our team works closely with the other medical services at Valley Children's Hospital, as infectious disease management can be critical in treating patients’ other medical conditions.
