Pediatrics

The Department of Pediatrics at Shanghai United Family Pudong Hospital (SHUPH) assures you that your child will receive high-quality pediatric outpatient and inpatient care in Shanghai. Our pediatricians have many years of experience in caring for children, both in China and internationally. Your child is special and deserves the pediatric care.

Our experienced pediatricians are trained to prevent and manage health care problems in infants, children, teens and young adults. Children have different health care needs than adults. Our international staff understands the physical, emotional and social development of children. Children might be too young or too shy to talk, so pediatricians understand the importance of listening carefully to your child and you. Children often present different symptoms than adults, and need different medications and treatments. Our pediatricians are specially trained to recognize the importance of these differences, especially in young children and newborns.

We provide comprehensive care for children in Shanghai including preventive care. We work closely with other professionals including those in our Mental Health, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Surgery departments to evaluate and recommend treatment for children with special needs. We are also committed to helping you find pediatric subspecialty care if needed.
