Our 18 board-certified pediatricians provide comprehensive newborn care at our Wellness Clinic and Lowell Clinic.
At Northwest Arkansas Pediatrics, a separate Wellness Clinic offers a safe environment for infants and well children. Sick children are seen in a separate Acute Care Clinic to keep viruses from spreading to your newborn and other well children.
Choosing a pediatrician
A pediatric hospitalist will care for your newborn at the hospital and coordinate care with the pediatrician of your choice. Your baby’s pediatrician will see them for seven infant wellness visits the first year, and yearly wellness visits up to age 21. Meet our 18 board-certified pediatricians
