When your child is sick, your priorities instantly change. Driving for half-an-hour or more for physician visits or multi-day hospital stays can be exhausting. In an urgent situation, distance can be even more serious. The Jordan Valley Children’s Center prioritizes a family-centric approach to healthcare closer to home.

The new Jordan Valley Children’s Center, on the campus of Jordan Valley Medical Center, provides comprehensive pediatric care from board-certified pediatric physicians and nurses with extensive pediatric-specific credentials. The West Jordan 9-room unit is equipped to provide care for patients as young as one week old up to 18 years of age.

Examples of pediatric conditions treated at the Jordan Valley Children’s Center:

  • Croup
  • Bronchiolitis
  • Diarrhea and dehydration
  • Closed head injuries
  • Respiratory asthma

Additional features include:
