Welcome to Pediatric Rheumatology
The Division of Pediatric Rheumatology specializes in disorders of autoimmunity. Autoimmune diseases are conditions in which the body “attacks” itself.
Annual outpatient visits for the Division exceed 4,000. Each year the faculty and staff of our Division treat over 800 new patients from a wide area of Pennsylvania and Maryland. Because we recognize that patients prefer to be seen as close as possible to their homes, we see patients at nine different locations.
On the Hershey campus, patients are seen in both the Medical Group and Penn State Bone and Joint Institute. The Bone and Joint Institute, located at the East Health Campus (30 Hope Drive), houses centralized services including physical and occupational therapy, musculoskeletal radiology and other specialized physician services including Neurology, Orthopaedics, Neurosurgery, Adult Rheumatology, and Orthopaedics.
Appointments can be made via your referring physician. If you have other questions, we can be reached at 717-531-8882 or toll-free at 866-204-0035. Our fax number is 717-531-0135.
