Phoenix Children's Resumes All Services
COVID-19 Resource Center
Families across Arizona need and depend on Phoenix Children’s. That’s why we are resuming important services for children at our hospital and clinics statewide, including elective surgeries in accordance with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s recent Executive Order. We understand your family’s health care needs do not stop, even when it seems like every other aspect of life has changed over the past few months.
Creating a Safe Environment
We know you may have concerns about leaving your home right now. That’s why we remain committed to continue providing our patient families with convenient and safe in-person care in all of our health care facilities, consistent with CDC guidelines.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, we have safely cared for thousands of children who needed in-person treatment. Your child may need to be treated in person, too. We follow all best practices issued by local and national health authorities, which include visitor restrictions, screening our providers and other care team members, wearing masks and other personal protective equipment, and using telehealth where appropriate.
We're also providing an extra layer of safety through measures like staggering patient visits and treatment schedules to allow for social distancing.

Phoenix Children’s is resuming services, treatments and surgical procedures across all of our specialty areas. These services promote healing, relieve pain, and dramatically improve kids’ quality of life. This care should not wait.

Many families have stayed away from the doctor’s office and missed out on important preventive and primary care due to concerns about COVID-19. Now is the time to schedule an appointment.
- Vaccines: Vaccines are critical for defending against dozens of serious conditions that threaten children. With vaccine rates declining amid the pandemic, the CDC warns that risks of measles and other vaccine-preventable illnesses are increasing. They strongly encourage parents to move forward with scheduled immunizations.
- Annual well checks: During this visit, your pediatrician performs a complete examination to ensure your child is developing properly – and to make a plan for extra care if needed. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics is stressing the importance of well checks and immunizations right now.
- Sick visits: Many injuries and illnesses get worse without treatment. If you believe your child should be seen by a provider but are nervous about leaving home, please contact your pediatrician’s office. Your provider will talk with you about your child’s health issue and determine the right course of action.
