Academic Pediatrics | Complex Care Clinic & General Pediatrics

The Washington University Complex Care Clinic provides a primary medical home for children with medical complexity from birth to adolescence. Our goal is to help families navigate the health care system more efficiently by optimizing collaboration and care coordination with WUSM subspecialty providers, therapists and home care services. We aim to help achieve the best possible health outcomes for these patients that frequently have a range of complex medical needs and diagnoses that require both acute and chronic care.

We provide availability to our patients 5 days a week for well child care, advanced assessment and management at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Suite 2D. We are happy to provide pediatric primary care to siblings of our patients.

We welcome referrals for patients 14 years and under who do not currently have a PCP to coordinate and manage their complex medical needs.
Typically these patients will have one or more of the following:

  • Technology dependence (G-tube, tracheostomy, ventilator) or wheelchair dependence
  • Two or more chronic conditions under treatment
  • Ongoing management by three or more WUSM subspecialists
