Spokane, WA—Valley Young People’s Clinic – a group of pediatricians located in Spokane Valley and Liberty Lake – will join Providence Medical Group, effective January 1, 2014.

“Valley Young People’s Clinic is a group of highly regarded pediatricians who have served the greater Spokane Valley area for more than 36 years. They have a strong reputation for providing compassion and quality care to the children they serve and their families,” says Judy Felgenhauer, MD, clinical lead for PMG Pediatrics and Pediatric Hematologist/Oncologist. “In addition, Valley Young People’s Clinic is a vital new partner for Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital. The additional pediatricians round out the comprehensive scope of services at the Children’s Hospital,” continues Felgenhauer.
Providence Medical Group is the physician services organization within Providence Health Care, owner of Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children’s Hospital and Providence Holy Family Hospital in Spokane, WA. It includes more than 500 physicians and advanced practitioners in Spokane and Stevens counties. In addition to primary care physicians, its medical staff includes a wide array of surgical subspecialists and medical specialists.
“We are excited to have Valley Young People’s Clinic as part of our team,” says Kirk Rowbotham, MD, chief medical officer of Providence Medical Group. “The addition of this group of excellent pediatricians to the Providence Medical Group team is an expression of our determination to increase access to quality health care for children throughout the community, with a particular focus on residents of the Spokane Valley as we prepare for the opening of our new Providence Medical Park in the spring of 2014."
In a prepared statement, the Valley Young People’s Clinic physicians state “Valley Young People’s Clinic is proud to announce their affiliation with Providence Medical Group. It is a privilege to join the area’s leader in pediatric health care services. Together we will be a group of physicians and a hospital system dedicated to the care of children and their needs.
