Our mission

Being sick is part of growing up. Colds, sinus or ear infections are common. But when things are more serious, the Penn State Children's Hospital pediatric infectious disease team is here to help.

Our specialists work quickly to find out what kind of bacteria, virus, fungus or parasite is making your child sick. We treat kids of all ages, from infants to teens.

You can talk to our experts about symptoms and concerns in an inpatient or outpatient setting. Our team also offers sensitive, complete care to children with HIV and their families through the Pediatric Comprehensive Care Clinic.
