Cleveland Clinic Children’s Center for Pediatric Infectious Diseases offers a variety of services including:

  • Consultation for the diagnosis and management of children with infectious diseases.
  • Laboratory assistance in the diagnosis of infections.
  • Treatment of infectious diseases.
  • Assistance in the selection of antibiotics, antivirals or other forms of therapy.

Our team of four doctors and one nurse coordinator is available to provide evaluation and treatment to patients in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. A pediatric infectious diseases specialist is always on-call and available for daily hospital consultations. We treat infants, children and adolescents who are hospitalized, including those in our intensive care units who are critically ill after surgery and organ transplantation. Specialists are available for inpatient consultation at Cleveland Clinic main campus, Fairview Hospital, Hillcrest Hospital and Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation.

Our pediatric infectious diseases specialists hold regular outpatient clinics that allow our patients to receive treatment for various infectious issues, while maintaining quality of life outside of the hospital. Some common reasons for referrals to our outpatient clinic include prolonged and recurrent fevers, recurrent infections and management of home intravenous antibiotics.

Cleveland Clinic's Pediatric Infectious Disease Fellowship is a 3 year ACGME accredited program provides well-rounded training in both clinical infectious diseases and research. Our goal is to train pediatricians to be outstanding infectious diseases clinicians who are prepared for a career in clinical infectious diseases, research and/or infection control, with a strong emphasis on academic medicine. The inpatient service is very busy and is supplemented with outpatient and travel clinics. Cleveland Clinic Children’s is the only children’s hospital in Northeast Ohio that in addition to kidney and bone marrow, performs heart, liver, intestinal and multi visceral transplantation.
