Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
As part of UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh’s ongoing commitment to providing family-centered care, the Division of Pediatric Rheumatology makes a concerted effort to involve and educate the parents of our patients. On the Web, our Parent Advisory Committee, parent-to-parent connections, parent alerts, and the information available through frequently asked questions, all provide an exchange of information that will help them and their children to remain active throughout their daily lives.
Take the opportunity to learn more with your personal involvement, or keep informed of current topics relating to the medicines or characteristics associated with your child's condition.

The patient must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who is familiar with the child’s medical history.
The time required for the initial visit varies, but please allow up to three hours. Follow-up visits can take up to two hours. It may be helpful to bring a quiet activity (such as games, books, toys, and a light snack).
Please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your child’s scheduled appointment time to allow adequate time for registration. Please be sure to bring all pertinent X-rays and records, including a list of your child’s medications, with dosage and frequency. If you are unable to keep your child’s appointment, please call the scheduling office at least 48 hours in advance to cancel and/or reschedule.
Although medical emergencies may occasionally cause delays in the office, we make every effort to see all patients in a timely fashion. Therefore, if you arrive late for your appointment, we may ask you to reschedule.
Some time after the age of 18, UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh patients transition to adult caregivers. Individuals older than 21 are not hospitalized at Children’s Hospital. Our staff will work with you to find a qualified adult rheumatologist who can meet your child’s specific needs.
Pediatric nurse practitioners or nurses answer the majority of phone calls under the supervision of or in collaboration with physicians.
