We care for patients from a large region that includes the Pacific Northwest, Idaho, Alaska, Hawaii, Montana and Wyoming. We want to deliver the best care in a way that families can manage. We know that travelling to Seattle Children’s main campus is not always feasible. In these cases, we often practice “shared care.” In shared care, your child’s treatment is directed by our team, but some appointments are at one of Seattle Children’s outreach clinics or the office of another gastroenterologist near you.
For those families that do need to travel long distances, our social workers and Guest Services can help find hotels or other places to stay. Read more about options such as hotels, RV parks and Ronald McDonald House.
