Medical Services for Newborns, Children & Young Adults
At Salinas Valley Medical Clinic (SVMC), you have access to a primary physician
for your child from the moment they are born. Our
obstetric doctors are also board-certified family medicine practitioners, giving
you a chance to create a relationship with your child’s doctor before
they are even born. From the moment your baby is born, it has access to
quality medical care. Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System also has
a neonatal intensive care unit for newborns suffering from illness.
Comprehensive Care for Children
Children will require numerous visits to the doctor in the earlier stages
of life. Their immune systems have not fully developed, and their bodies
are more susceptible to damage than a full grown adult. Pediatricians
are specially trained in how to strengthen young people and what kind
of treatments their bodies can handle.
Pediatric services cover a wide array of specialties:
- Hearing and vision screening
- Pediatric anesthesiology
- Counseling services
- Mental health treatment
- Neonatal care
- Gynecological services for young women
- Sports medicine
It is important to have a doctor you trust facilitating the medical care
of your child. Our medical team strives to create positive relationships
with patients that encourages communication. You should always feel comfortable
asking your child’s doctor questions and having them address any
of your concerns.
Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and
treat a variety of conditions that may be affecting your child. At SVMC,
you have access to
diagnostic imaging like X-rays and MRI, and a variety of medical professionals specializing
in numerous forms of medicine. Our services extend to Monterey County,
Salinas Valley, the Central Coast and surrounding areas.
