It provides a full spectrum of care for children including 20 medical and surgical pediatric specialty and subspecialty services. It also offers consultations with psychiatrists and behavioral health specialists.

Forbes magazine describes Lancaster as a newly hip Victorian city just three hours from New York City is still one of the U.S. s best kept secrets. The center of Amish country is bucolic but boasts a bustling food scene and is quickly becoming a cultural hotbed. The architecture is the real star, so explore the alleys and cobblestone streets by foot, checking out the many repurposed old warehouses that house thriving businesses... The arts are central to Lancaster s growth, notably the stunning Fulton Theatre and neighboring Prince Street, Lancaster s gallery row, which pulses with art on summer first Fridays.

This is an opportunity to direct program growth in one of our population centers, and tailor a practice to your expertise and interests. Neighboring cities are also potential areas of growth.
