With an estimated 40,000 children in living in Salem, Oregon there is a significant need for specialized pediatric care. Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel
is now offering specialty care to families in the Salem area at Salem Pediatric Clinic
, to expand the number of experienced pediatric specialists coming from Portland to Salem on a regular basis.
“Salem Pediatric Clinic is privileged to be a part of a health care community providing comprehensive care to our patients - this includes the new expanded services of Legacy providers here in Salem providing excellent care to those in the Willamette Valley,” says Dr. Suzanne Bailey
, pediatrician at Salem Pediatric Clinic.
16 pediatric specialists from Randall Children’s Hospital will be providing expert specialty care to children of all ages at Salem Pediatric Clinic. Specialists began seeing patients in January 2017, providing a significant increase in specialty services, complementing the already impressive care provided at the clinic.
“Randall Children’s Hospital is looking forward to enhancing and expanding children’s access to specialized care in Salem,” says Dr. James Kyser
, pediatric cardiologist at Pediatric Cardiology Center of Oregon
. “We have been providing specialty care in the Salem area for over 14 years and have seen first-hand the importance of providing easier access to care by keeping patients and their families in their communities. Rather than worrying about traveling to Portland, our patients and their families are able to focus on their care. That’s important.”
