Every patient received healthcare, which included medicine, physicals and immunizations – all free of charge.  The Baby Health Clinic serves children in the Greater Lexington area whose families do not qualify for a medical card and cannot afford insurance.
  • Throughout the 2016 year, we treated over 1,800 sick children and over 450 well children. During these visits we put donation money to work with over $26,000 in medications and medical supplies.
  • We provide pediatric healthcare in a friendly, warm environment to children from birth through age 17.  Office visits are offered for sick children, as well as routine check-ups, physicals, lab tests, X-rays, and referrals for specialized treatments.
  • Please call the clinic to schedule a well-child appointment during office hours:  Monday and Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., or Tuesday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m.- 12:00 noon.
  • The clinic is closed on federal holidays and when Fayette County Schools are closed due to inclement weather.
  • No appointment is necessary for sick children who should be brought to the clinic at 7:30 a.m.
  • Prior to their first appointment, all new patients’ medical records including immunizations, and a copy of their social security card should be provided to the clinic.  This information can either 20140224_084407be faxed to 859-277-4929; or brought to the clinic at 1590 Harrodsburg Road.

Giving for the Future

  • Through the volunteer efforts of our physicians and board members, Baby Health Service, Inc. is able to keep its operating costs to a minimum. A pediatric nurse practitioner and two registered nurses are the only paid staff at the clinic. If you would like to donate please click on the Good Giving link below!
  • Since our patients pay nothing for treatment, Baby Health Service, Inc. absorbs the rising costs of medicines, lab tests, and immunizations.
  • By educating parents about healthy habits during routine physical examinations, children are likely to become ill less often.
  • Healthy children mean fewer emergency room visits and fewer missed school days.
