Pediatrics

Healthcare for Infants, Children & Adolescents

At Horizon Health, we know how important it is to make the most of your children’s health; whether it’s well child checks, vaccinations, immunizations or help with the bumps and bruises along the way.

Your child's first visit at one of our clinics will consist of filling out paperwork, an evaluation from a nurse and your primary care provider, and suggestions on possible treatment options going forward. Prepare to bring any documents or other items you think you need to properly assess your child's health and wellness.

Your Partners During This Journey

Infancy to adulthood is a time of rapid change and development. Even if you’ve had children before, you’ll no doubt find differences in the ways each one grows up both mentally and physically. It can be hard to keep up with all the developments during this time, but you don’t have to do it alone. At Horizon Health, our providers are your partners in your child’s healthcare. We can answer your questions, give you some idea of what to expect as your child gets older, and get your child ready for school and camps with annual physicals.

Being a parent isn’t an easy job, but it is a rewarding one. Our job is to serve as your support system when you need help. Our providers take the time to learn more about you and your family to deliver the best care possible.

“Reach Out and Read”

Our family medicine providers participate in the national “Reach Out and Read” program, which provides new books to children (infants to age 5) during well-child visits.

Local funding is provided by the Horizon Health Foundation of East Central Illinois. All books are age-specific and include such popular titles as: Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks, Clifford’s Animal Sounds, Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, and Goodnight Moon. Children are able to keep the books to create their own home library.

According to Reach Out and Read officials, independent research shows that children who participate in the program are read to more often by their parents, have improved language skills, and have a greater love of reading. The first five years, they proclaim, is the best time to influence a child’s future given this timeframe of rapid brain development.
