Multidisciplinary Care for Children

CHRISTUS Health provides a multidisciplinary approach to meet the needs of children who suffer from complex medical problems. Physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, dieticians and social workers work together to assure patients and families have access to medical care and all necessary resources to achieve optimal health and comfort.Our family-centered care offers a comprehensive evaluation of the child and family’s illness experience. We ensure we provide clear communication of the child’s disease, prognosis and advanced care plan that stays consistent with the child and family’s values and goals of medical care.

Conditions Commonly Treated 
At CHRISTUS Health, we have experience in treating chronic medical conditions for infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
