All too often, families of critically ill children have to travel from place to place or even across the country to get the specialized care their children need. Our medical community has come together to focus and expand health care for kids in one place in Tucson – Diamond Children's Medical Center.

Diamond Children's offers a bright, healing environment where children feel safe while receiving the advanced care they need from the pediatric specialty physicians and researchers of the University of Arizona Steele Children's Research Center, as well as community pediatric physicians.

Diamond Children's Medical Center was designed as a bright, healing environment for kids and their families. We provide everything we can to make you feel safe and at home.
