Why Choose Us?

Parents choose Children’s Health Care in Newburyport and Haverhill because of our commitment to children’s health. We provide compassionate, comprehensive care that is centered around your child’s physical, mental, and emotional needs as they develop. Because of our core values, we are in the process of becoming a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH).

Team Approach

CHC is composed of a diverse group of providers that work closely together to treat not only symptoms but the whole child. Our team includes board-certified pediatricians, nurse practitioners, nurses, a pediatric nutritionist, and a special needs expert. We encourage family involvement by working closely with parents to ensure the treatments we provide are effective and that your child is thriving between visits.

Circle of Care

We strongly believe in the full circle of care to help your child reach their greatest potential. Our providers collaborate with each other, with our on-staff specialists, and with you as a parent to ensure your child receives the care they need during each developmental stage. Should your child require a referral to an off-site specialist, we continuously communicate with the specialist to monitor your child’s progress throughout their course of treatment.

Extended Hours

Our providers are available when you need us. We offer extended hours in the morning at all locations for walk-in sick visits, as well as weekend and holiday hours at our Newburyport Lower Level office. CHC triage nurses are available to answer questions by phone during our office hours. Outside of our normal office hours, a CHC provider is always on call to respond to emergencies and answer urgent questions. If you need to speak to the on-call provider, please call (978) 465-7121.


Patient-Centered Medical Home

In a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), care is provided in a child-centered, family-focused manner, when and where our patients need it. A PCMH is more than just a series of buildings. It means we provide a full circle of evidence-based care that is comprehensive, patient-centered, and accessible.
