Primary Care, CHOP Campus

Primary Care, CHOP Campus (formerly General Pediatric Faculty Practice) is located in the heart of CHOP's Main Campus, and provides primary care services from birth through young adulthood to both medically healthy and medically challenged children from the tri-state region.

Our caring and compassionate staff includes 10 board-certified CHOP pediatricians who serve on the faculty of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and are fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Our pediatric nurse practitioner is a fellow of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and is also board certified.

CHOP Campus is also certified at the highest level by the National Committee for Quality Assurance for healthcare quality and safety. The practice was also awarded Top Tier Ranking in the Blue Cross Practice Quality Assessment program in 2011.

Choosing your child's primary care pediatrician

We encourage you to identify one member of our group as your child's primary care provider (PCP) for yearly routine check-ups and physicals. During times of illness, our schedules allow for great flexibility to accommodate your needs, including evening and Saturday appointments. 

When you make your child’s appointment, please let our staff know about any concerns you have about your child's health so sufficient time can be scheduled for your child’s office visit.

Emergency appointments

Emergency appointments are available to accommodate unexpected illness. A pediatrician is on-call 24 hours a day for emergencies.

Our office will do everything we can so that your child can be seen by their PCP, but if your PCP is unavailable, another provider will be.

Cancellation policy

As a courtesy to all of our patients, we ask that families notify our office 24 hours in advance if your child cannot keep a scheduled appointment. 

Research

We partner with the Pediatric Research Consortium (PeRC). If you are interested in participating in a study, speak to your provider about research projects that may be a fit for your family.
