The CARE Center evaluates and initiates treatment for children of suspected physical or sexual abuse and neglect. Watch a video on how to prepare for your visit and what to expect.

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.
