Western Colorado Pediatric Associates provides exceptional medical care to the children of Grand Junction and Fruita, Colorado, Western Colorado and Eastern Utah and has for more than 30 years. Our team of highly skilled pediatricians, advanced practitioners, and nurses have consistently received excellent reviews from our many satisfied patients. Our office is proud to offer expert care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. We see children from birth until their 18 years old "well visit" and for acute illness visits until they are 19 years old.  As teens are getting ready to move to an adult doctor we will help them with the transition to a doctor in the community who is better able to focus on more adult type of care. Western Colorado Pediatric Associates have Spanish speaking doctors available.
Pediatricians who can handle everything you need from primary care to specialized medicine. We have after-hours care, behavioral health care, medical-dental integration, and community support with WIC on-site, Reach Out and Read Healthy Steps, and Parent Resource Groups.

The Grand Valley has had some hot days this week! Extreme heat makes the body work extra hard to keep a normal temperature, and parents need to watch children and pets extra carefully during extreme heat. Plan ahead for outdoor activities and make sure to drink plenty of water before, during and after outdoor activities. Avoid exercise or strenuous activity during the hottest hours of the day, 10am - 5pm. Watch for signs of dehydration, and take a break to seek shade and/or air conditioning if you see any signs of dehydration. #HeatSafety #beattheheat #SummerSafety #HeatstrokeKills #mesacounty ...
