Meet the Child Protection Team
The hospital employs a dedicated team of board certified forensic physicians, nurse practitioners, and social workers who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of physical, sexual, and medical child abuse.
The physicians are both double-board-certified in pediatrics and “child abuse pediatrics” which is the official name of the nationally recognized board certification. The NPs have focused their practices on child abuse diagnosis and treatment. Most team members have between 12 to 30 years of experience.
The Child Protection Team also partners with city-operated advocacy centers in Glendale, Mesa, Avondale, and Eloy, and also provides inpatient evaluations at three Phoenix-area hospitals.
