About Bingham Healthcare Pediatrics

At Bingham Memorial Hospital, our pediatricians care for children from birth until they become adults. Our pediatricians treat day-to-day illnesses that are common to children such as minor injuries and infectious diseases. They also ensure children are receiving regular examinations, which are important to assess their physical and emotional development and to determine if a child has any health-related risks or preexisting injuries. 

During annual examinations, our pediatricians speak to parents about developmental and safety issues for the overall well-being of a child, perform complete physical examinations and check their blood pressure. They also weigh and measure a child to make sure he or she is progressing along a normal pattern of growth, and ensure children are up-to-date with their immunizations for the school year.

BINGHAM WELLNESS CORNER

People of certain ages should get immunizations to stay safe and healthy.

  • Kids between 11 and 12 years old need shots to protect against diseases such as tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, and meningitis.
  • All adults should get a tetanus shot every 10 years, and adults at age 65 need a one-time pneumonia shot.
