Southwest Pediatrics offers complete children's health services. Our outpatient office is designed to serve you and your child's healthcare needs in a friendly, comfortable setting. We provide the best medical care to every child every day. A team of highly qualified health care professionals and the staff at Southwest Pediatrics are there when you need them.
We are a Patient Centered Medical Home
    Patient Centered is a way of saying that the patient is the most important person in our healthcare system.
    A Medical Home is an approach to providing total health care. With your medical home, you will join a team that includes health care professionals, trusted friends or family members (if you wish), and most importantly - you.
    Your responsibility as a Patient is to provide your PCMH team a complete Medical History and information about care you have obtained outside.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Southwest Pediatrics website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
