Seeing Medicine Through A Child’s Eyes
At SouthCoast Health Pediatrics, we see the world of medicine through a child’s eyes. That’s just one of the reasons our office in Rincon has earned such a sterling reputation for leading-edge, high-quality care among parents in the community. Our physicians and medical professionals treat kids of all ages- from newborns and infants to growing children and adolescents as old as age 21.
SouthCoast Health began its pediatric services in Rincon in 2006. Dr. Amanda Hendricks, Dr. Jami Scanlon, along with nurse practitioners Kalen Rogers and Haley Dickerson promote wellness by focusing on growth and development for each child and provide up-to-date medical care in times of sickness. Our pediatricians are certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and have trained exclusively in pediatrics for three years after medical school to learn to diagnose and treat a wide range of childhood illnesses. We combine that highly specialized training with excellent communication skills and an engaging manner, to create an environment in which children are more comfortable and parents are less stressed. We then work closely with parents to educate them on the healthcare needs of their children as they progress through various growth stages.
SouthCoast Health Pediatrics in Rincon, is the only Pediatric Group in Effingham County that has been awarded recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance Patient-Centered Medical Home Program. This recognition attests that our practice has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.
A patient-centered medical home is a model of care that strengthens the physician-patient relationship by replacing episodic care with coordinated care and a long-term healing relationship. Each patient has an ongoing relationship with a personal physician who leads a team at a single location that takes collective responsibility for patient care, providing for the patient’s health care needs and arranging for appropriate care with other qualified clinicians.
SouthCoast Health Pediatrics is pleased to offer same day appointments for your child during the week and urgent care services on Monday evenings from 5:00pm-7:30pm. Urgent care services are also available on the weekends at our pediatric offices in Savannah and Richmond Hill.
