We are your instant link to more than 450 board-cer­ti­fied pedi­atric pri­ma­ry care and spe­cial­ist physi­cians at over 75 prac­tice sites through­out Cen­tral California.

Plus, our col­lab­o­ra­tion with Val­ley Children’s Hos­pi­tal stream­lines your child’s access to the region’s top pedi­atric spe­cial­ists. The Child­Net Med­ical Asso­ciates team works along­side our pedi­a­tri­cians, nurs­es and spe­cial­ists so they can keep their focus on giv­ing your kids the best care.

The Largest of its Kind in California

In 1993, a group of inno­v­a­tive pedi­a­tri­cians and hos­pi­tal lead­ers joined to form Child­Net Med­ical Asso­ciates, a physi­cian-owned pedi­atric inde­pen­dent prac­tice asso­ci­a­tion (IPA). At the time, the cre­ation of a net­work of physi­cians ded­i­cat­ed sole­ly to the health­care needs of chil­dren was con­sid­ered a bold move.

Two decades lat­er, Child­Net Med­ical Asso­ciates has emerged as the largest pedi­atric IPA of its kind in Cal­i­for­nia. Found­ed in strong lead­er­ship and solid­i­fied with a group of ded­i­cat­ed doc­tors, Child­Net Med­ical Asso­ciates will con­tin­ue its com­mit­ment to the health and well­be­ing of chil­dren in the Cen­tral Valley.

It’s All About the Chil­dren. Your children.

Child­Net physi­cians are on a mis­sion to pro­vide the high­est lev­el of pedi­atric exper­tise and qual­i­ty of care to meet the unique pedi­atric health care needs of Cen­tral California.

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with Val­ley Children’s Hos­pi­tal, Child­Net Med­ical Asso­ciates physi­cians are ded­i­cat­ed to ensur­ing that health­care prac­tices, poli­cies and pro­ce­dures are in the best inter­est of the chil­dren. Always.

We strive to uti­lize our net­work of expe­ri­enced physi­cians to con­tin­u­al­ly improve children’s care by sup­port­ing and enhanc­ing the prac­tices of our members.

We are dri­ven to be an invalu­able resource for the health­care needs of infants, chil­dren and ado­les­cents in Cen­tral California.
