Pediatric Infectious Diseases

If your child has a recurring or persistent disease caused by an infectious agent such as bacteria, a fungus, a parasite, or other rare infection, our pediatric infectious disease experts at the Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper can help. Our team has extensive experience to help properly diagnose and treat your child.

Our infectious disease specialists diagnose and evaluate infections in children caused by bacteria, viruses, and other organisms. We assist in the treatment of disease through the use of antibiotics and other agents and aid in the prevention of disease by vaccination against infection.
