Practice News

We are proud to inform you that our practice will soon be working more closely with Washington University, effective July 1, 2018.
We see this as an exciting opportunity to partner with a prestigious academic medical center, while maintaining our independence. Southwest Pediatrics will remain a private organization, and our day-to-day operations will not change. However, our physicians and nurse practitioners will now be employed by Washington University as of July 1, 2018. We will continue to provide the same dedicated pediatric care our families expect!
If you have any questions, feel free to speak with your child's provider or a member of our billing staff.

Also, as of July 1, 2018, we will be unable to accept online payments for the time being.

Thank you for your support of Southwest Pediatrics.
