Jasper Pediatrics has been caring for infants, children, and young adults since 1989. Originally a part of St. Mary's Medical Center in Evansville, IN Jasper Pediatrics decided to become independent from St. Mary's in 2003. In 2007 the Physicians and staff of Jasper Pediatrics alligned themselves with Memorial Hospital and HealthCare Center in Jasper, IN. This move was mutually benficial in that it allowed the staff of Jasper Pediatrics to continue to focus on patient care while the hospital could focus on the management of the practice during an evolving health care environment.
The underlying philosophy at Jasper Pediatrics is very simple. We are available to our patients and their families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Whether by phone or being seen in the office, someone is available to answer questions about your child's healthcare needs. Because no one wants to sit in the Emergency Department all night or all day on a holiday, the office is open every day of the year for ill children, Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays included. On those rare occasions when we do not have the resources to provide the care required by the patient, we fascilitate a referral to a physician or hospital which can provide that care. It is not about us; it is all about the patient and the care they require.
As part of the Hypocratic philosophy, teaching is a large part of what we do. During well visits we will discuss development and issues families should come to expect as their child grows and develops. During illness visits we strive to educate the family on various treatment options and discuss the pros and cons of those options. We strive to work with the family and help them make informed decisions about the health care of their children. Also as part of our teaching, we are very active in passing along the knowledge we have aquired over the years. It is not uncommon for us to have Residents, Medical Students, Nursing Students, Nurse Practioner Students, and Physician Assistant Students in our office. Being a place for students to come and learn makes us stay up to date with the latest treatment options, medications, and tests which our patients may require.
As the needs of our patients and their families evolve, so does the practice of medicine at Jasper Pediatrics. We have opened 2 satellite offices in order to be closer and more convenient to families under our care. We have offices in Santa Claus, IN and Cannelburg, IN.
If you are moving to the Jasper area or are currently not satified with the care you are receiving, we offer free meetings with our Physicians and staff. Please call our office (812) 996-7918 to set up a meeting with us.
