CCP - South Hills Pediatric Associates Brochure (PDF)
Since 1954, CCP – South Hills Pediatric Associates has been dedicated to providing a medical home to the children in our community. Indeed, some families have entrusted us with the care of their children for three generations. We pride ourselves in our devotion to the medical care of all children from newborns to adolescents, from normally developing children to those with the most complex medical problems. You’ll notice from your first phone call or office visit that our board-certified pediatricians, certified registered nurse practitioners, and highly trained staff are devoted to providing the highest quality care in a timely and friendly manner.
As parents ourselves, we know you want to bring your child to someone who is committed to listening to and addressing all of your concerns. We provide expert, non-judgmental advice on newborn care issues such as breastfeeding advice, formula choice and vaccine safety. We can provide the continuity of care that you desire. As your child gets older we can help provide guidance about health maintenance, nutrition, discipline and any other issues that arise. We are firmly committed to addressing urgent issues promptly either over the telephone through our expert triage nurses, or through office visits that can almost always be scheduled within hours of your call.
As primary care providers in this network, we can coordinate care with specialists and offer high-quality pediatric and adolescent primary care. Please come meet us and let us help you raise physically and emotionally healthy children.

We welcome all newborns to our practice. If you are delivering at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, UPMC Mercy, The Western Pennsylvania Hospital, or AHN Jefferson Hospital tell the staff that you have chosen CCP – South Hills Pediatric Associates, and we will see your baby within the first 24 hours. If you are delivering at another hospital, we will see your baby at the office as soon as necessary after discharge, usually within two to three days. Call our office before you leave the hospital to schedule an appointment.
After-Hours Care and Emergency Service
Our telephones are answered 24 hours a day. After-hours sick calls are answered by Children's Hospital's Triage and Advice Center. This experienced group of pediatric nurses can assist you with medical advice, and will contact the doctors if necessary. If your child needs immediate medical attention, one of our doctors is always available.
If your insurance plan requires a referral for services outside of our primary care office, please call in advance and our staff will assist you in obtaining the referral. Please try to call five business days before you need your referral so we have time to process the paperwork.
