A Healthy Foundation For Your Child
Caring for your little one’s health is an important job. That’s why we’re here to support you and your child through every stage of development to ensure they thrive from birth to young adulthood. We are passionate about helping children grow through quality care in an environment that makes them feel safe and comfortable.
ThedaCare pediatric providers are trained in any physical or emotional health need that may arise during your child’s life. We welcome new patients of all ages, and encourage expectant mothers to choose a pediatric provider for their baby before they deliver. We look forward to serving you and your child through all the joys and challenges of life as they grow.

Pediatric Treatment & Services
Along with caring for your child during well visits, we advise on lifestyle habits, developmental milestones, immunizations, and can recommend any specialists as necessary. We also support new mothers through lactation counseling to help each child get off to a healthy start.

- Rotavirus & Rubella
At each appointment, we are dedicated to listening closely to you and your child to best address concerns and issues key to disease prevention. Our ThedaCare physicians advise on a variety of safety and wellness concerns, including:
- Car seat safety
- Healthy lifestyle (nutrition, fitness, sleep habits)
- Concussion care
- Water safety
- Bicycle and helmet safety
- Dangers of illegal drugs and risky behaviors
- Diabetes prevention
- Social media use
Certified Lactation Counselors
Once mom and baby have left the hospital, there can be many questions around nursing. Our Certified Lactation Counselors (CLCs) are available to provide information and support to nursing mothers. Office hours are held at the Appleton and Neenah ThedaCare Pediatrics clinics.
Connected for Kids
ThedaCare is partnering with Bellin Health and Children’s Wisconsin on a pediatric joint venture, Connected for Kids. It’s aimed at improving the health and well-being of children and adolescents in northeast and central Wisconsin, as well as the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
