Valley Children’s Hospital has opened its newest pediatric outpatient location in Fresno.

Located at 1125 E. Spruce Ave., Suite 101, Spruce Specialty Care Center offers pediatric orthopedic and child advocacy services to its patients. Valley Children’s will add otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) services later this year.

“We continuously look for ways to better serve our families,” said Jane Wilson, Valley Children’s senior vice president and chief strategy officer. “With thousands of children coming into our practices each month we knew adding a second access point not far from the Hospital would help alleviate wait times and ensure children get the specialized pediatric care they need, as quickly as possible.”

The child advocacy clinic is part of the Guilds of Valley Children’s Child Abuse and Treatment Center. The clinic operates five days a week and see more than 1,000 children each year. The staff includes a board-certified child abuse pediatrician, nurse practitioners who specialize in child maltreatment, social workers, a center coordinator and support staff.

The otolaryngology practice at Valley Children’s provides comprehensive medical and surgical care for children from newborns to age 21. They are the only dedicated pediatric head and neck surgery group in Central California and perform around 33,000 operations annually. Ear, nose and throat services will begin at Spruce Specialty Care Center later this year.
