Child Abuse Pediatrics

The Child Abuse Pediatrics division is a regional referral site for the diagnosis and treatment of infants and children who have experienced child abuse and maltreatment. Division staff provide inpatient consultations at Children's Hospital & Medical Center as well as Nebraska Medicine. The staff also has an outpatient clinic at Children’s for complex social situations and physical abuse.

The division also runs the only comprehensive foster care clinic in the region. This clinic provides medical, developmental, behavioral health, dental and optometry for children in foster care. They work closely with parents, foster parents, case workers and attorneys to ensure that the medical and mental health needs of these children are properly assessed and treated.
