Flu Vaccines are Here! Call our office today at 314-353-8777 to schedule your family's vaccine appointments.
Effective August 1, 2019, the doctors of Washington University Southwest Pediatrics will no longer make rounds in the newborn nurseries at St. Clare and St. Mary's Hospitals. If you are having a baby and delivering at either of those hospitals, that is no problem! The hospital pediatricians will care for your baby at the hospital. When you are getting ready to go home from the hospital, just call our office to set up your baby's first appointment. We generally like to see the baby in the office within a few days after going home. We will continue to make newborn nursery rounds at Mercy, Missouri Baptist and Barnes Jewish. If you deliver at one of these hospitals, our doctors will see you and your baby at the hospital.
Our office will be closed on Thursday, July 4th, 2019 for the Independence Day holiday. Our normal office hours will resume on Friday, July 5th and Saturday, July 6th, 2019. We hope all of our patients have a safe and happy holid

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.
