Like you, we believe that every child should have an active life. But sometimes, stinging insects, foods, pollens, and even reactions to aspirin can get in the way. Repeated infections and asthma can also keep your child on the sidelines. Here in Pennsylvania, asthma alone puts more of your child’s classmates in the hospital than any other illness.
We can help them — and your child — to get back in the game. Every day of the year, we treat children who have asthma, allergies, hives and other conditions related to the immune system. In fact, many of our Pediatricians specialize in Pediatric Allergy and Immunology.
As part of your child’s care, we use our experience, education and a variety of tests and treatments designed specifically for children.
Each of our specialists wants you to know, too, that you are a key part of the healthcare team. We teach you and your child about symptoms and the best treatments. So your child can get on with the business of simply being a child.
Janet Weis Children’s Hospital also cares about the future. That’s why our experts devote time to research that will lead to better treatments and even cures for children here in Pennsylvania and throughout the U.S.
