IWK Community Pediatrics

Providing a variety of hospital-based services in the community

The IWK Community Pediatrics Division comprises a group of general pediatricians that act as an extension of the IWK in family-centred community care locations by providing a variety of hospital-based services.

As well as supporting the General Pediatrics ambulatory care clinics, the division collaborates with the IWK Primary Health Office on Community Pediatric Clinics in Spryfield, Preston and Rockingstone Heights. The goals of these programs are multi-faceted and include:

  • offering Consultative Pediatrics by referral in communities without such services
  • community engagement/development around child/youth health issues
  • collaboration with existing community resources engaged in child/youth health issues
  • collaboration with primary care teams
