Children’s Services

As a parent, the care of your child comes first. That’s why John Muir Health is here every step of the way to help you. Working together, your child is in good hands – from infancy through adolescence.   Choose your Pediatrician

From help soothing your infant’s rash to supporting your teen, a John Muir Health pediatrician is like a good coach – working right alongside you for the best care of your child.

Choosing a pediatrician is easy. To find one near you, go to Find a Doctor and search for pediatricians. Then view their videos to get to know them better.

Children’s Nutrition Services

Good nutrition is important at any stage of life, but it is especially important for babies, children and teens so they can be healthy as they grow. From picky eaters to more complex nutritional issues, we offer a comprehensive range of children's nutrition services, support programs and classes to help you ensure your child is getting the best nutrition possible.

Pediatric Specialists

Sometimes your child needs special treatment. When this happens, we have specialized pediatric doctors who treat a variety of conditions.

To get to know our pediatric specialists, go to Find a Doctor and enter Pediatric in the Specialty field. Many of our doctors have videos, so you can get to know them better.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

It’s rare, but some newborns need to stay in the hospital for a time after birth. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at John Muir Health is a world-class Level III NICU for the around-the-clock care of premature and critically ill babies.

High Risk Infant Follow-Up Program

After a stay in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, we don’t just leave you all on your own to care for your baby. We want to help you make sure that your child meets important developmental milestones as he or she grows. That’s why we have our High Risk Infant Follow-Up Program. We’re here to help – giving you the guidance and support you need to take care of your little one during the first three years.

Pediatric Complex Care Unit

We know how hard it is when your child needs to spend time in the hospital. And we recognize that you know your child better than anyone. That’s why we want you and your family to be a part of the healing team -- alongside our doctors, nurses and support staff. And our private rooms make it comfortable for you to stay with your child through the night.

Adolescent Behavioral Health Services

Sometimes teenagers need extra help to find a healthier path. We offer several psychiatric and behavioral health programs to help your teen work through a crisis – or just get along better in life.

Children’s Behavioral Health Services

When your four- to twelve-year-old child is showing signs of depression, anxiety, or other behaviors that are troubling to you, we give them the personalized care they need with a focus on family participation.

Pediatric Imaging

Big imaging machines can seem scary to a child. At John Muir Health, we take the “scary” out of imaging -- and give you the peace of mind of a quick and accurate diagnosis. Our staff includes a Pediatric Radiologist and a Pediatric Nurse. And we’ve been trained in image gently procedures. This means that we use the lowest radiation amount needed and you can feel confident that your child is as safe as possible.

Please call (925) 952-2887 or contact us.

Customer Service hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 P.M.
