Pediatric After-Hours Care

What do you do when your child has a fever, or suffered a fall, and your regular doctor’s office is closed? Or maybe there’s a situation that doesn’t look serious enough for an emergency room visit, but you want to see a doctor as soon as possible. That’s when the MarinHealth Pediatric After-Hours Care Clinic's a valuable option. Staffed by board certified pediatricians, our Pediatric After-Hours Clinic is the county’s only after-hours clinic exclusively for children under 18.

Pediatric Diabetes Program

Diabetes education and care for children and their families require a special approach. Thanks to our special partnership with the UCSF Madison Clinic for Childhood Diabetes, the Braden Diabetes Center offers education and care for childhood diabetes onsite.

Pediatric Hospitalists

MarinHealth Pediatric Hospitalists are available 24/7 to attend to high risk deliveries, care for critically ill neonatal patients, provide consultation regarding pediatric patients in the Emergency Department and when necessary, admit pediatric patients to the Medical Center.

Pediatric Infusion Services

There’s no longer any need for families to travel across the county or the bay to find high-quality infusion treatments. MarinHealth Medical Center has expanded care to include specialized infusions for patients age 0 – 25 who require one-time or ongoing IV therapy for a variety of conditions.

Ouchless Emergency Department

A trip to the Emergency Department (ED) can be scary for both children and their parents. That’s why MarinHealth Medical Center features an Ouchless ED incorporating child-friendly protocols that help take the anxiety and pain out of visits.

Physicians and Emergency Department Staff have had extensive training in distraction and sensitivity techniques to calm and reassure young patients.

Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP)

Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP) logoThe ED at MarinHealthMedical Center has been designated as an Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP) by Marin County Emergency Medical Services Agency. This designation is the result of a two-year effort to optimize emergency care to better meet the needs of children and their families.

Specialized Care for Children—Before They are Born!

Our care for children begins even before they arrive, in the form of our expert prenatal and maternity care. We also offer specialized perinatal and neonatal care, thanks to our alliance with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.

UCSF Perinatologists and Neonatologists

For high-risk pregnancies, our obstetricians work closely with UCSF Health perinatologists who are onsite 24/7. Dividing their time between UCSF Health and MarinHealth Medical Center, these experts monitor mother and baby throughout the high-risk pregnancy.

We also work closely with UCSF Health neonatologists—doctors who specialize in newborns—onsite at our Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to direct the care of preemies and newborns with health issues.
