Benefits of a Group Practice

Our patients have access to the resources and medical expertise of our network of offices and resources, including evening, weekend, and holiday hours, as well as our entire team of board-certified pediatricians and Advanced Practitioners.

We offer physician availability 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. In the event that your primary pediatrician is not available, you can take comfort in knowing that one of our caring pediatricians will always be able to provide personal attention to your child. 

History

Pediatric Health Care Alliance was established in 1997, when 26 long-standing local pediatricians joined together to form a single-specialty pediatric group practice. They wanted to build a high quality, comprehensive, network of care for children, while remaining independent of powerful health care systems that were developing in the area. 

PHCA has since grown to become the largest pediatric group on the West Coast of Florida, with more than 70 board-certified pediatricians and advanced practitioners who have dedicated their careers to providing the best medical care for your children. PHCA currently offers 15 neighborhood locations throughout Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties.

Physician Owned & Locally Grown

Our medical practice remains independently owned by our pediatricians, which means that all decisions about health care services for your child are made entirely by our local team of pediatricians. 

We have strong ties to the Tampa Bay community, beginning when one of our founding offices was established more than 50 years ago in South Tampa. Many of our providers are from Florida, and graduated from local universities and medical schools. We are committed to growing our practice exclusively within the Tampa Bay community and exclusively for the Tampa Bay community. 

Your Child's Medical Home™

Our growing alliance of pediatricians brings together vast knowledge and experience to provide optimal physical, emotional, and psychological development as your child grows.
