Last summer, Kaiser Permanente opened the Interdisciplinary Pediatrics Center in the Mid-Atlantic States. Located in the Capitol Hills Medical Center, this 23,387-square-foot facility provides many specialties just for kids, all under one roof.


Bringing care teams together for children’s health


“This is a child-friendly location for families to get superior access and superbly integrated care that is unique to Permanente pediatrics,” says Shital Desai, MD, PIC for the District of Columbia and suburban Maryland. “This addition provides our patients with outstanding service.”


The pediatric center is part of a greater effort to make care easier and more convenient for young patients and their families. For example, the relocation of pediatric endocrinology and neurology from the Kensington Medical Center brings all pediatric specialties together in one place. This move also allows room for more patients to receive care at once.


Treating special patients with specialty care


This expansion offers primary pediatric care, plus multiple specialties, including:


  • Cardiology
  • Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Neurology
  • Hematology/Oncology
  • Urology

A warm, welcoming environment


In addition to exam rooms, the brightly colored center also features a play room, family and patient education rooms, and an interactive, audiovisual wall to keep children entertained while they wait to see their doctor.


With this new center, our youngest members will have a place where their health and well-being come first, no matter their care need.
