Infection Prevention Remains a Priority!

Patients may choose to initially check in from the car when arriving at the clinic; patients who are not ill may wait either in our waiting room or in their vehicles. (If your child may be contagious and you arrived on foot, by public transit, or were dropped off, please notify us and we will bring you and your child back immediately to an exam room… no one has to wait outside in the weather!) While masks are no longer required in Oregon health care settings, we request that anyone coming into our office who has symptoms of possible COVID (cough, fever) wear a mask. We continue to sanitize patient rooms in between each visit and sanitize high touch areas on a regular schedule throughout the day. All of our employees have been vaccinated against COVID and continue to utilize best practices for healthcare infection control.

Who is Childhood Health?

Childhood Health Associates of Salem, which we affectionately call “CHAOS”, was established in 1977 as an independently owned one-doctor pediatric practice. Over the years we’ve grown, moved to a new building in 2006, and added a number of comprehensive services.Today we are a group of pediatric medical and behavioral health professionals (and stellar support staff!) who believe that all children deserve quality preventive care, behavior health management, and chronic disease management. Pediatric care (for both special-needs patients and more typical kids) is our passion, and we look forward to seeing our young patients grow up happy and healthy!
