The Johns Hopkins All Children’s General Pediatric clinic provides primary care services that focus on the treatment and prevention of common conditions for children from newborns to adolescents. We offer a wide range of outpatient services, including routine checkups, treatment of minor illnesses, immunizations and care for behavioral problems. We understand the unique needs of our patients at different stages of their childhood development and realize the importance of comprehensive primary care. If your child experiences acute/sick symptoms, we are able to accommodate same-day appointments.

If a child needs additional care outside of our clinic, our team has access to pediatric specialists and subspecialists throughout our hospital, making it a seamless transition to specialty care.

What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?

When you schedule your child’s first appointment, you will be asked to choose a primary care provider. Your child will be seen by that provider for visits and scheduled with another provider only if your child's provider is unavailable. This concept allows for greater continuity of care and builds relationships between your family and the provider. We consider you an important part of our health care team, and you are welcome and invited to participate in all aspects of your child’s care.

As your child’s medical home, we are a central resource for all of your child’s care needs and will help you find needed information and resources, such as information about pediatric specialists, health conditions/latest treatments, support services for your family and other community resources.

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital strives to provide accessible, comprehensive, compassionate care to our patients and their families. Each patient is followed with the “whole person” orientation in mind to effectively provide care across every setting and improve outcomes for your child through becoming a patient-centered medical home.
