Children at Risk Evaluation Center

Overview

Our center evaluates and initiates treatment for children of suspected physical or sexual abuse and neglect. We have a team of doctors, nurses and social workers who see children and teens referred by private physicians, law enforcement agencies, child protection agencies and other community agencies. We also provide consultation when abuse is suspected for a child on an inpatient unit.
