Let us introduce ourselves…
We, at Childhood Health, are a group pediatric practice specializing in the care of children serving children of Salem and surrounding areas since 1977. We specialize in children with complex health needs. We believe that all children deserve quality health care.
We serve a large population of children on the Oregon Health Plan as well as most commercial health plans in our area. Our services include comprehensive preventive care, behavior health, disease management, and urgent health needs. Since we are physician owned we are able to evolve quickly to changes in health care and family’s health care needs.

Our clients say the nicest things…
We have been so happy with Childhood Health! Our children have been patients at the clinic for almost five years and we have had nothing but positive experiences with the doctors and staff.
When we go for an appointment the front office staff is very friendly, we never have to wait long to be seen and the nurses and doctors take the time to really listen to you and answer any questions you have enthusiastically.
We also really love the nurse line, they have helped answer questions for us at home on more than a few occassions. We feel so lucky to have found this clinic for our children.
I love how personal the doctors are. The staff are professional care givers that show the greatest respect towards their colleagues and their patients. The doctors are prompt and professional. They show empathy to the parents as well as the children. It’s a safe place to take children to.
One of the doctors came to visit one of their patients in the hospital. He had an asthma attack and was sent to Salem hospital. She came right down to see him and to comfort the (visibly shaken) parents. I saw that and switched to Childhood Health Associates of Salem.
