Pediatric Care at Bluestem Health is anything but ordinary. Our physicians know it is important to work together with parents and caregivers toward achieving their common goal - excellent childhood health that sets a child up for a healthy lifetime. We provide wellness care and routine check-ups, same-day visit to help your child get healthy when they are ill, routine immunizations, and education for a lifetime of great health. 

Bluestem Health has many resources within the clinic that other practices may not have. 

 • In-house hemoglobin and lead labs for quicker results
 • Quality medical, dental, and behavioral care in one location
 • A medical home for the whole family
 • Opportunities for translation in person with a live translator instead of over the phone
 • Patient support to access programs like Medicaid and SNAP benefits
 • Reduced cost services for uninsured and underinsured

At Bluestem Health, our board certified pediatrician, Dr. Erica Peterson, works in conjunction with our other clinicians in caring for children. Our staff works to respond to the unique needs of children with the patience and empathy to communicate successfully with children and their caregivers for excellent healthcare and a healthier lifetime. 

“It is critical that families feel completely comfortable asking questions because providers are here to be a resource for the family,” says Dr. Peterson. “If parents don’t feel comfortable asking questions, they don’t get the most out of the visit and they might miss out on the support they need. It is very important that families have a provider that they know will care about their child and will be the best advocate for their child so they can reach their full potential.”

We are currently accepting new patients for all healthcare services, especially:

• School physicals
• Immunizations
• Asthma treatments
• Same-day sick visit appointments
• And more

At Bluestem Health, we are a trusted and dependable resource for excellent medical, dental, and behavioral health services for people of all stages in life from infancy and beyond.
