With double-digit growth in Effingham and our community’s appeal to families, Effingham Pediatrics has grown exponentially in its first five years. To meet the increasing demand for pediatric services, the practice needs a dedicated office space with room to expand primary care and add in-demand specialty services.
EHS is renovating one of the county’s iconic buildings to create a welcoming, and state-of-the-art Pediatric Center focused on wellness and healthcare. In addition to existing primary care and telehealth, new pediatric specialty services may include nutrition, speech therapy, orthopaedics, physical therapy, ENT, mental/behavioral health, and chronic disease education.
Transitioning from 400 to 5,000 square feet of dedicated space will position Effingham Health System to meet our fast-growing community’s needs with the best possible pediatric care— CLOSE TO HOME.
