Children’s National Health System is committed to providing primary care services to children throughout the Washington, D.C., 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.

Also at THEARC, you will find Children’s mobile health services offering accessible, high-quality care to children and families in the district. Our blue, wheelchair accessible mobile units visit 11 sites weekly, including several locations near public housing. One mobile health unit is always available at THEARC from 8:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. daily.

Mental Health services are offered at this location on select days of the week, and visits require an appointment. Please call to learn more about specific mental health services offered or to make an appointment.
