Pediatrics is Moving to a New Location

Bluestem Health Pediatrics will move to its new and expanded location at 3100 N. 14th Street, in the same building as our Bluestem Health Kreshel Clinic.

Pediatrics is Moving to a New Location

Caring for our young patients has always been at the center of our Pediatrics program at Bluestem Health in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our board-certified pediatricians have been providing exceptional care at our Main clinic, but with the increased number of pediatric patients, we’ve outgrown our space at that location. We are excited to announce that effective August 2, 2021, Bluestem Health Pediatrics is moving to a new location at 3100 N. 14th Street, in the same building as our Bluestem Health Kreshel Clinic.

Important Role of a Pediatrician

The pediatricians at Bluestem Health are licensed to provide care for infants, adolescents, and children up to age 18. They offer full-scope pediatric services so they can manage all aspects of your child’s health – physical, behavioral, and mental care.

Some of the services our pediatricians provide include:

In addition, Bluestem Health’s pediatricians coordinate complex medical care with other subspecialists, such as cardiology, should your child have an illness outside the scope of pediatrics.

Our Pediatric Physicians

Bluestem Health’s pediatricians are experienced in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of illnesses throughout a child’s growing years, from minor health concerns to serious diseases and hospitalization. Whether your child is an existing patient with us or you are searching for a new pediatrician, you will find our doctors are extremely compassionate and focused on the wellbeing of your child.
