Infectious Disease

About Our Infectious Disease Services

Even the most vigilant parents can't prevent their child from being exposed to an infection. Infections can happen at home, at school, and when traveling abroad.  When it does occur, though, you can turn to our team of highly trained specialists.  

Our Pediatric Infectious Disease Division provides inpatient and outpatient care for children with various infectious and communicable diseases, ranging from common childhood illnesses, such as recurrent infections that are resistant to antibiotic treatment, or fevers of unknown origin, to more complex viral infections like HIV/AIDS, and bacterial or fungal infections, such as hepatitis or tuberculosis.
