Understanding Environmental Allergies
About one in three people have allergies in the U.S., including children, but many people are underdiagnosed or undiagnosed. Listen or download the podcast featuring Dr. Christopher Parrish to learn more about environmental allergies.
Dedicated Pulmonary Wing
The Pediatric Pulmonary Center at Miller Children’s is a dedicated wing that includes 15 private and semi-private beds and a care team who specializes in conditions involving the lungs and respiratory system in children and young adults.
Children with lung problems often suffer from multiple conditions. Knowing that, Miller Children’s created a dedicated center where families can come to receive all the specialized care they need.
The Allergy, Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis & Pulmonary Center at Miller Children’s offers “total pulmonary care,” meaning board-certified specialists in pulmonology, allergy and immunology work together to treat and improve the quality of life for children and young adults with conditions involving the lungs and respiratory system, such as asthma, lung disease of premature infants, cystic fibrosis, allergies, sleep disorders and more.
Whether a child is in the hospital or receiving follow up care at the Pediatric Pulmonary Outpatient Specialty Centers, they will be seen by the same care team, who are experts in their specialty and know what their patients need to live a healthy and active life. Many of Miller Children’s patients stay with their care team from birth until they turn 21.
