Children can get sick at any time, sometimes without warning. It might be difficult to schedule an in-person visit with your child’s pediatrician when that happens.
Video visits with UPMC Children’s AnywhereCare can help solve some pediatric problems without you ever leaving the house. You and your child can meet with one of our pediatric health care providers to get care for some illnesses and injuries.
The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Children from newborns to age 17 can get treatment through UPMC Children’s AnywhereCare.
The video visits are safe, secure, and HIPAA-compliant.
