Pediatrics Q & A
What is pediatric care?
Pediatric care is a specialized area of health care that focuses on the health and wellness of children from birth through the age of 18.
The goal of quality pediatric care is to:
- Control the spread of infectious disease
- Promote healthy lifestyles
- Prevent, diagnose, and treat acute and chronic disease
- Support children and families affected by chronic disease
- Reduce infant and child injuries and deaths
Quality pediatric care involves much more than just physical illness, but also your child’s mental and emotional health. The Monarque Health & Wellness team recognizes the value of you, as the parent, in establishing good habits and keeping your child as healthy and happy as possible.
What conditions are treated with pediatric care?
Pediatric care involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of both acute and chronic conditions, such as:

Quality pediatric care also promotes early detection and effective management for emotional and developmental concerns, such as:

A key part of pediatric care is putting you in touch with any resources you may need to help support your child’s physical, emotional, and mental health. Your Monarque Health & Wellness pediatric team can connect you with any specialists you may need throughout your child’s development.
