Children’s Health Center

Children’s National Health System is committed to providing primary care services to children throughout the Washington, DC region. Care is offered at seven convenient locations with extended weekday and Saturday hours. We encourage you to visit your medical home when your child is well; however our patients are welcome to be seen for sick care at whichever of our seven health centers that is most convenient for them.

Children's Adolescent Health Center provides comprehensive, primary care for adolescents ages 12 to 21. Some 10 and 11 year olds are treated if developmentally mature. Physicians in the Adolescent Health Center also serves as sub-specialty care consultants for community health care providers who refer their patients to the center.
