Children and families who live south of the Sunshine Skyway have a new option for expert pediatric specialty care visits closer to home. Johns Hopkins All Children’s Outpatient Care, Lakewood Ranch will open Tuesday, Sept. 5, as the newest location within our regional network of care.
The Lakewood Ranch center at 6075 White Eagle Blvd. in Bradenton, serves a geographic area with a growing number of families. It offers physician visits in several pediatric medical specialties with a demonstrated need for expanded access.
- The pediatric endocrinology and diabetes team will see patients daily, Monday through Friday.
- Lakewood Ranch is the first regional Johns Hopkins All Children’s Outpatient Care Center to feature adolescent medicine visits, which will be available one day each week.
- Pediatric cardiology and rheumatology physicians will see patients one day per week.
- Pediatric neurology visits will be available two days per week beginning later this fall, when a child neurologist who will be dedicated to the Sarasota-Bradenton region joins the neurology team.
- Nursing services, phlebotomy, EKG and echocardiography are available to support the specialty clinics.
“The Lakewood Ranch center aligns exactly with our mission and our strategic priority to make Johns Hopkins All Children’s easy,” says Justin Olsen, J.D., M.H.A., vice president and chief operating officer of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
“It will be a convenient location where children from Manatee, Sarasota and southern Hillsborough counties can receive outstanding care closer to home.”
Lakewood Ranch joins the Sarasota, North Port and Fort Myers outpatient care centers in advancing the health of children and families in the region.
Parents who phone the hospital’s centralized patient registration line will be offered appointments at the Lakewood Ranch location based on their home address. In addition, families seeking a first-available appointment in any of these five specialties will be offered the option to schedule a visit at the new center.
Seven employees will be based in the new 5,200 square foot center, notes Shirley Storo, M.S.N., R.N., ambulatory regional director for the south market, which spans Manatee through Lee counties.
