Young Children's Health Center (YCHC)

Young Children's Health Center (YCHC) is a community-based pediatric clinic that provides comprehensive health services to families with children from birth to young adulthood residing in the southeast heights of Albuquerque.  Staff is bilingual Spanish/English in order to better serve the community.  Special components of this clinic include home visitation to families with babies 0-36 months, behavioral health services, case management, and outreach activities to local schools and the community center, which includes gang prevention and intervention and other neighboring activities.  Networking and collaboration with other community programs is a priority and strength of YCHC.  Children with special healthcare needs and their families are offered the opportunity to participate in a "medical home" model of individualized care.

This year we are expanding our services to include specialists in several fields including cardiology, dermatology, gastrointestinal and pulmonary. Patients and families will now have access to these specialized services in their own community.
