Overview

Adoptive Health services are provided by our Locust Pediatric Care GroupOfferings include pre- and post-adoption services, as well as international adoption resources, such as travel advice, initial care of the child while traveling, and phone and email contact while the parents are abroad.

The Oak Adoptive Center was established in June 2004 through a donation from Jim and Vanita Oelschlager, who have an adopted grandchild. In 2015, adoptive services were merged into the Locust Pediatric Care Group.

Adoptive services do not replace your child’s primary care doctor; however, if medical issues exist, our team is available.
