Pediatrics

UK HealthCare and College of Nursing pediatric nurse practitioners have provided collaborative services to our smallest and youngest clientele for more than 20 years.

Baby Health Service, Inc.

Baby Health Service was founded in 1914 to provide baby formula at no cost to needy families. The mission has expanded greatly to meet the changing needs of children in our community. Since nearly one in five children in Fayette County has no insurance, the focus and mission have evolved into providing total health care to children from birth through 17 years. Baby Health Service is now a pediatric health clinic that provides free medical care to children whose families are ineligible for a medical card yet cannot afford health insurance. The clinic is open five mornings a week. UK’s College of Nursing and Baby Health have partnered for many years in providing a nurse practitioner to the thousands who are cared for. Baby Health also serves as a clinical site for pediatric and family nurse practitioner students.
