HIGHLAND PARK PEDIATRICS IS A PATIENT-CENTERED MEDICAL HOME:

At PediaTrust, we are proud to be able to be a patient-centered medical home (PCMH).  This means we provide healthcare for your child based on well documented medical evidence.  We provide this through parents and patient education.  Focusing on all aspects of your child’s well-being.  We coordinate your children’s care across all of their healthcare settings, ensure that they can receive care and clinical advice when the office is open or closed, and support you in managing their care at home.  We are committed to providing equal care regardless of your course of payment and will assist you in obtaining insurance plans we accept.  In order to best care for your children, we ask that you provide us with their complete medical history and information about care received outside of the practice.

We support behavioral health care needs through our partnership with other community mental health providers.
