North Country Family Health Center began serving children in 1971 and continues that legacy today. Our pediatric team of board-certified pediatricians, pediatric, and family nurse practitioners, and lactation consultants will deliver high-quality, accessible healthcare to you and your family in our recently renovated health center.

For your convenience, we are available until 6:00 p.m. during the week and provide some Saturday morning hours too. We also provide daily walk-in appointments for sick visits.

Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read is a national literacy program where providers, as part of a child’s routine medical visit, are trained to offer parents guidance about the importance of reading aloud and encouraging child literacy. At each well visit children 6 months - 11 years will receive a new book to keep and take home.
