Pediatrics – Primary Care
Key Principles and Values
- Family-Centered Care: We are partners with children’s families to raise healthy, well-adjusted children with good habits for lifelong health.
- Quality medical services emphasizing prevention: we are committed to bringing our patients and families the very best medical care available anywhere.
- We celebrate cultural diversity: We have a multi-lingual and multi-cultural staff, and easy access to BMC Interpreter Services to enable families to participate in the care of their children delivered within the program.
