Seeing a Primary Care Physician

Primary Care

Our primary care physicians care for newborns, infants, children, and adolescents. They provide preventive care, treat illnesses and injuries, and diagnose acute and chronic diseases.

One of the benefits of choosing a Children’s National Health System primary care provider is that our primary care providers can often facilitate a timely referral to a Children’s National specialist. Our entire care team are recognized experts in care for children; it’s not part of what we do, it’s all we do.

Primary care at Children’s National is provided to children in the Washington, DC region through two comprehensive networks: the Children’s Health Centers or Children’s Pediatricians & Associates.

Children’s National Health Center

There are seven Children’s National Health Centers located throughout Washington, DC. Our health centers are recognized as National Committee for Quality Assurance Level III Patient-Centered Medical Homes, the first in the District.

Children's Pediatricians & Associates (CP&A)

With more than 40 providers at 10 locations throughout Washington, DC, and Maryland, CP&A offers quality care at convenient locations. CP&A primary care providers take a team approach to care for children.
