CMS Specialty Clinics

Children’s Medical Services, in collaboration with local public health agencies throughout the state of Georgia, seeks to ensure statewide access to pediatric specialty care by supporting pediatric specialty clinics for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN).

The clinics exist to provide access to pediatric specialty care for children and youth with special health care needs and their families living in rural counties in Georgia where pediatric medical specialists are least available. The clinics are designed to offer specialized clinical services and specialized pediatric medical care to children, youth and their families

These pediatric specialists:

  • provide specialty care for neurology, orthopedics, asthma, genetics
  • collaborate with local primary care providers and model a medical home team approach
  • provide access to specialty care in rural communities of Georgia
